Craig Harding setting up for the crux on Sandman.

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


The rock down low on this one is a bit suspect looking but seemed solid enough. Hard overhanging crimps and dynos will get you to a difficult clip on the 4th bolt. Then if you're short you will have one more strenous long move to pull over the bulge to easier ground. This move may be easier if you are over 6' as you will be able to reach past the last crux move.


The third route on the right hand wall.
