me leading Maneater on the Cannibal Crag in Red Ro...

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


pretty straight forward. 4 bolts lead to a cold shut anchor. crux comes after the third bolt.


Huge boulder to the right of Red springs parking area. Facing the boulder, Man-eater is the last route on the left side.


4 bolts to cold-shut anchors.

probably not a bad idea to stick clip the second bolt on this one, as the first bolt doesnt do much good.

really fun climbing to a burly crux. not sure how this route got known for being soft at the grade....

On 5/14/10 the LVCLC and the ASCA replaced the open shut anchors on this route with new 1/2" bolts and mussy hooks.

Certainly not soft for the grade. Just my opinion. Good route- powerful crux moves.

Strong climb, definitely not light on the grade - Id say prob more like 5.12b (but what the hell do I know).

Lots of extra chalk all over the climb, be mindful of your style (if going for the onsight) and keep your mental beta loaded lol
