Stefan on Dodging a Bullet

RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>


Just right of Crosshairs and much better. Scramble atop chossy ledge and reach real high to first bolt; be careful! Long moves and remarkably sustained climbing. Different character from the rest of the routes on the wall. Definitely worthy and good for the grade.


5 bolts

This route was fun, but the bolts and the anchor looked somewhat suspicious. I think they're fine (better than some of the other routes I was on) but still a little spooky.
