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

Description

Lucky Nuts is the most prominent route in the Mudterm area- in the large white corner, there is an arching flake system that arches up and left to meet with another large flake to form a corner. Climb up this part, then follow the corner to a ledge. From here, move up, then right and up to belay. This route is fairly sustained and was originally led with passive gear in 1977!

Protection

Generally standard rack to 4", lots of slings fairly useful, large cams for belay.

Recently climbed Lucky Nuts using what we consider to be a slight variation of the beginning. Staying right in the offwidth/chimney adds a fun challenge and makes the route a lot more burly. Really fun if you like that sorta thing, certainly makes you more gassed for the top. Protected by: Big Bro 4, .3 Camalot, and #6 Camalot in addition to the suggested rack for the top. Jan 28, 2012
