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


Climb a positive leaning ramp to the roof (crux)
jam through the roof and pull through it ! !
Then ascend a beautiful varnished crack to the top.


100 ft right of Little Big Horn.


No anchors, walk off behind and towards the parking lot.

its over after the roof (maybe 6 feet of climbing)... someone, wisely, installed a fixed anchor just above the action, i recommend using it instead of the walk-off... the anchor is better than it first seems w/ two fixed knots and a stopper. more than adequate for my 220 lb. frame as of april fool's day 2011

A fun climb with a burly roof pull. As far as anchor situ, the anchor Jon mentions above has ceased to exist at some point between when he climbed it and I got on it, but a tree about 100' up has a new looking (Apr 2013) sling on it with a semi-rusty quick link and a 'biner someone else left.
