Haunted Hooks on left and Roto Hammer on right

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

Description 

Start at a left-facing flake underneath huecos. The beginning is somewhat reachy for the vertically challanged and requires a little ingenuity. Then things thin out and get a little cruxy before reaching the anchors.

Location 

This is the second route from the entrance on the wall.

Protection 

9 draws and some anchor building goodness.

Good moves and sustained climbing but some fragile rock up high.

A little reachy, but fantastic nonetheless- well worth doing, especially if you do the two routes to the right as well.

Don't think the climbing is reachy at all. My girl at 5'1 foot lead it with no problem.

On 3/15/11, the LVCLC with support from the ASCA replaced the 8th protection bolt on this route with a 1/2" x 2.75" SS 5-piece.

Really good route. Some chains in the anchor would be good, looks like folks have been TRing on them quite a bit.

@ Nick- we're gonna replace those and the other metolius rap hangers on that wall semi-soon, probably mid-April.

Definitely one of the better 5.10s at the second pullout.

Incredible route. Definitely some flexy flakes on this so proceed with caution.
