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

Description 

Wisdom starts in a nice hand/fist crack, and then travels through a very blocky loose section to gain a chimney. Only the wise pass through successfully without knocking off a loose block. After you pass the test climb the continuous deep squeeze chimney that is hard to protect but also quite fun.

Location 

The right most crack that forms the "triad".

Protection 

a few hand sized, large cams, and/or a few bros, stoppers, helmet for belayer.

Descent: This route can be rapped with a 70M off a slung block and nut.
