Approaching the overhang

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


This route is on the south facing wall in the slot to the left of the main crag. The center line; climb the varnish slab to the last bolt, and then pull the overhang on huge jugs to the anchor.


5 bolts to anchors.

This route was by far the best at the cliff! Thuggy but interesting, more flow than the others on the slot wall. Well done, Mike. This route makes the cliff worth a visit in and of itself.

Again, I think the grades are soft here. Felt more like a 5.8. Nice flakes and large holds.

Awesome route with great flow and some fun, pump moves up top. This portion of Civ Crag can get very windy and chilly in the winter since it lies within a mini corridor - come with layers.

Very fun, I thought it was easier than Manifest Destiny and the direct line of This is Sparta.
