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

Description 

This is the far left route at the Gallery- about 50' or so feet left of Sport Climbing is Neither. It's pretty much as hard as it looks- a tricky crux off the ground leads to steep climbing through a bulge and then to anchors.

Protection 

4 bolts

IMHO, only the crux (around the second bolt) is 10d, the rest climbs much easier.

Climbed this on TR only because of the first two bolts. I felt that the crux was 1) getting to the first bolt because it's crimpy and slightly overhung, so having a good core helps. The move from the first bolt to the large flake takes a little finesse, but once you have the large flake (right at the second bolt) the route eases up significantly and becomes more like a 10a/b to the anchors.
