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


Alcove in distinct left facing corner. Crux is getting up through the alcove by trudging, stemming, chimneying until you can emerge to the corner above. A bit strenuous but great fun.

Rappel from slings with single rope.


Takes cams to protect the initial awkward moves in the alcove. There are slings and rap rings to rap the route.

Once you get out of the stem-box/chimney/awkward fun, you will continue up the crack for about 15 feet. You will then step right around the corner on to the face. The slings are somewhat hidden and out of sight another 15 feet up and to the right.

If you continue straight up this crack you won't reach any rappel tat. Make sure to keep looking right as turn the corner.
