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


Climb up the 4 bolts, and then follow the crack. At the top of the crack move over the bulge and straight up to the anchor. Alternatively, traverse right at the top of the crack to a second crack and climb to the anchor from there.


Same starting point as 'Unknown', but after the first bolt, move left towards the obvious crack. A 60 m rope will bring you just down to the ledge, but a 70 m will make this easier.


4 bolts, half rack, 2 bolted anchors at the top with chains.

Descent: One can rap to the bolted anchor at the top of P1 of Man's Best Friend. Then it is one more rap to easy terrain. One 60 meter rope works.
