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

Description

Johnny Come Lately is an absolutely classic one-pitch face climb. Not only does it have very interesting moves and features for its entire length, but it also is safely, but not obscenely, bolted.

The line is just right of the first pitch of Overhanging Hangover, directly below the biggest part of the Fiddler on the Roof roof. Begin on a ledge accessible from some 4th-class climbing and trend up past nice hangers through some roofs and up the interesting features via fun, technical face climbing.

Rap 35m down the route.

Protection

A dozen draws and slings or so. A 70m cord or two ropes.

Fantastic route - consistently bold but never dangerous. At the bolt before the final headwall where the climbing gets much easier, break hard right and traverse tiny edges before moving up. I followed what seemed like the natural line up and slightly left and got committed to a 5.11+ horror show to get back on route. Apr 24, 2015
