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


On the right side of Illusion Crags is the south facing buttress. Around the corner to the right, between the edge of the buttress and the Slight of Hand crack, is an alcove leading up to a roof with two cracks. This route starts at a pine tree and ascends the right crack through the roof and up the offwidth above.

Belay from gear at the top. Traverse right 20 feet to rappel with two ropes from the False Perception anchor.


Standard rack plus additional wide gear for the top.
