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


Also known as "Guys From Josh." Start about 30 feet left of the corner on Cram It. Follow bolts past the beach-ball hole to anchors.

I loved this route. Rotten, loose, safely bolted, positive, tricky...enjoy it. Be gentle, though-these holds won't be there forever.

I felt the route was solid! Well protected (read: closely spaced bolts) through the crux near the ground sees you pulling through a roofy-type overhang. after that it's smooth, yet pumpy, crimping and edging to the top.

Solid climb. For me i felt the crux with down low at the third and fourth bolts. All the holds felt solid.

This thing must have cleaned up significantly. All the holds seemed solid, minus one or two towards the top. Thoughtful footwork makes this a good and soft intro to the 10c grade.
