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


In the center of the main Mudterm cliff, follow thin cracks in a left-facing dihedral. Descend with one short rappel immediately to the east.

Blue Arrow indicates Mudterm, Green Arrow indicates rappel for the route.

Duel finger cracks with a good variety of movement. Some sandy stone but it takes good gear. While I was leading this a large block (relatively low on route) shifted dangerously with little effort and has since be cleaned off. I would now consider this route much safer for future parties. You can rap this route with two ropes, otherwise use rappel further east.

I did this Nov. 13 and fell pretty hard. Broken collarbone and some cuts. Sorry for the blood.
