BETA PHOTO: Pulling over the roof...

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


There are good holds that you can use to pull through the small roof. Rely on solid feet and nice crimps to cruise to the top.


This route climbs the north-facing wall of the alcove and is the farthest east of the routes. Climb over a small roof and continue up through a series of crimps. This route is east of the huge boulder sitting in the opening.

Poor rock quality and soft for the grade, more like 5.9

Worth doing if you are climbing here. I thought the rock quality was pretty good, moves pretty cruise for the grade.
