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


In the center of the main Mudterm cliff, follow thin cracks in a left-facing dihedral. Descend with one short rappel immediately to the east.


wires and finger-size cams
Great route with twin cracks. Felt hard for the grade. I would say take triples 0.5 to 0.75. May 19, 2017
I did this Nov. 13 and fell pretty hard. Broken collarbone and some cuts. Sorry for the blood. Jan 20, 2014

Duel finger cracks with a good variety of movement. Some sandy stone but it takes good gear. While I was leading this a large block (relatively low on route) shifted dangerously with little effort and has since be cleaned off. I would now consider this route much safer for future parties. You can rap this route with two ropes, otherwise use rappel further east. Jan 28, 2012
