Coming up the third pitch

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

Description 

With surprisingly good rock and 2 pretty good pitches, this route is great to do if in the area!

Pitch 1: Start to the right of a jam crack moving left passing a bushy ledge and right after passing the ledge, belay at the next ledge. 5.5 100'

Pitch 2: Continue up a chimney and up face. Belay on another brushy ledge. 5.6 200'

Pitch 3: Move the belay left about 20'. Start in a corner and move up until you see a water streak, traverse left and follow the pro up the white rock face. Belay when the angle eases. 5.7 R 140'

Pitch 4: Fourth class it to the base of a chimney. 60'

Pitch 5: Step out to the right and climb a small corner. This pitch has a nice lieback section. Set a belay on a platform at the top of the corner. 5.7 120'

Down lead from the platform via a juggy offwidth.




Location 

Even Men Out is located 200 yrds right of Lucky Nuts above a red cliff. Locate a massive crack on a varnished wall. The route starts about 20 feet to the right of the crack.

Getting Down:

After making the down climb, locate a tree with rappel slings to the right. Make a short rappel and scramble down the gully trending left to another rappel...This leads to a final rappel which deposits you about 100 yards right of the start.

Protection 

Standard rack...Some extra small stuff. No bolts!
