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


Another tough .11 face/slab route to end-cap Slabba Dabba Doo and Sidewinder. Starts in a pin/tiny RP seam just left of S.D.D., the ASCA replaced bolt is a reddish orange, helps distinguish this one from its neighbor to the right. Thin, techy climbing on the lower wall is followed by a clipped bolt and a traverse to the anchor of Straight Shooter, or continuing up Bird Crack on gear to an anchor. The climbing on the upper crack is friable and not trivial, micro wires mandatory.


25 feet left of Straight Shooter


Micro wires, TCUs, a couple of mid-sized cams.

Both this and Slabba Dabba Doo are pretty heinous for the grades they've been given. Interesting climbing, though-just R rated and cruxy. I emailed Mike Tupper for info on whether the original FA of this one went up Bird Crack or not, I'll post up when I hear from him.
