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


This routes begins just around the corner to the left of the small face with Schaeffer's Delight and Lazy Buttress. The short first pitch goes up a square-cut somewhat loose corner to a good ledge, even with the start of the above-mentioned climbs. The second pitch goes straight up on face climbing to a belay niche in a flared slot about fifteen feet up and left from a prominent bush. The third pitch continues up the slot and then ascends the dark headwall above. The climb ends with a short, easy pitch to Lovers' Ledge.

Descend by climbing up the the main gully and downclimbing east.

Attractive line, disappointing rock quality. Approach as for Schaeffer's Delight, but where that approach heads up right into the brush, diagonal about 50' left.

P. 1: Climb awkwardly up the initial corner past some loose blocks to the next big ledge. 5.7, 30'

P. 2: Face climb up the nicely varnished prow, trending up and left to a triangular alcove. This is a really enjoyable pitch. 5.7, 130'

P.3: Up the low-angle crack, then pull over the obvious roof and on to the varnished headwall. Climb delicately up the fragile rock of the headwall until the angle lays back; take your pick of belay stances. 5.9, 80-120' depending where you choose to belay.

P. 4: Easy rock to Lover's Ledge. 5.5, 80-100'

Standard rack to #3 Camalot, emphasizing small to medium cams.
