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


A pretty soft touch at 12d. The crux is a long reach to an undercling, easier when you're tall. It's approximately 3/4 up.
The route is excellent, around the same difficulty than the Gift.


The route on the left of The Gift. The Gift is the climb with the longest queue...lower from top anchors.


The draws are there, except for the first one.
