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


This route goes up the face and traverses right under a nose shaped roof into the slot on the right side. It is about 15 feet left of Sumo Greatness and about forty feet right of the petroglyph interpretive sign at the base of Children's Crag. Pulling the crux is pretty fun. Build a gear anchor at the top and walk off right. The rock quality is a little flaky on this route.


Standard rack to Camalot #4. A second #4 or a #4.5 or a #5 could come in handy at the crux.


The 2 bolts are on mittens revenge a easy'er climb next to tartans arm .
Felt the climb was cruiser up the start and through the traverse once you start to move up from the traverse it's a different story. You also might want more than one # 4 Sep 13, 2015

There is now an top anchor and two bolts on the thin section just before the anchor that take some of the pucker factor out. BTW, I did not add the bolts and anchor, just used them. First time I did this route in 2011, no bolts or anchor. Apr 25, 2014
