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


This route proves more difficult for short people, and has sequences that are not all that obvious for a moderate climb. It serves as a regular warm-up.


This is the third route on the right as you climb the hill.


Starts on a homemade hanger up to the anchors.

Oooh...Brings back memories.

I made the mistake of leading this as a brand spankin new climber, after reading John Longs "How To Rock Climb" book, and only had top-roped two routes, and led one 5.7 prior to hopping on P.I.P. It was VERY SCARY for a new climber/leader. Good thing I didn't fall because it seemed like there were only 3 bolts on it (?). A good climb though, as long as you're not a newbie leader.

It seemed way harder than I thought a 5.8 should have been at the time. Maybe because I'm 5'2". Harder for short people, like Matt mentioned? ; )

maybe this was a 5-8 at one time but it is reachy and i.m.o a little harder than 5-8 ,perhaps holds have broken off , also beware of a couple of jugs so hollow sounding that you can beat them like a drum. i agree w/ gigette note a good one for someone just leading in this range, same go's for the 5-9 to its left.

On 2/8/11, the LVCLC with support from the ASCA replaced 4 protection bolts and the anchor with 1/2" x 3.5" 5-piece bolts. The anchors are Fixe double ring hangers.
