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


Start at the far left end of the Brass Wall, as for Arachnoworld, but then come back right perhaps 10 meters to reach a left-facing corner. Just left of this corner climb up a face (a little junky) past a few horizontals to a short crack and a line of pockets that lead to the top of the short wall, perhaps 45 feet in all. Walk off to the left and down.


A few large cams to put in pockets on this face. The bottom of the route is a little sparse.

No pro until you reach the second ledge, about 12 feet up. Found a pretty good first piece with a .75 camalot in the crack where the rock is broken a bit on the right side (the lower spot).

Rap station with 2 rap rings on a couple of slings around a chockstone. Maybe add another sling if you are paranoid.
