Friend 5.10

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


Lots of big holds, lots of big rests. Climb the Hueco over a bulge. Bring a coffee for those no hands rests--don't be afraid to get up in that hueco and shake em out.


Lower corridor, right side. Directly behind that lonely shrubby tree.


5 bolts, 2 bolt anchor.

If this was the route I was on.... climb giant jugs and huecos and sit in the ones you want if you need a rest. At the top it slabs out over a bulge and you can move slightly left to to a big jug over the lip, or do a funky press out right to gain the slab. Well protected and fun.
