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

Description

This climb goes up the left side of the steep, rectangular patch of black rock in the Romper Room Area. Finger cracks, varnished plates and large jug holds bring you to the top. Well protected. Rappel from a two bolt anchor with one 60m rope. This is a good climb for the beginner leader.

I'm calling it a 5.7 because it seemed sketchier than Romper Room right next to it. Jul 17, 2017

Did this the other day finally (I can't believe I've never been to this cliff)- super fun climb that protects really well.

I'd definitely recommend this for a newer leader so long as they had a solid selection of gear. One or two 5.6 moves on it and the rest is a cruise. Oct 26, 2015

Good Red Rocks test piece for those who are already solid 5.6 leaders. Long and sustained climbing, takes good gear. Nov 27, 2013

There is a pretty cool finger crack 2/3 the way up, which could make the climb tougher if you have big hands. Otherwise, lots of foot placements. Mar 5, 2013

Did this last Friday; agree with a couple of the previous comments. Some sections seemed a little harder than 5.6ish --- I would not recommend this as a first trad lead. Oct 29, 2012

Doobie dance was my first trad lead. Near the top I remember threading my largest nut through two holes in a bomber flake! Jan 25, 2011

Agreed - not really a good opener for a first 5.6 trad lead. As of 4/17/10 there's a jammed cam about 20 feet up, left very recently it seemed, either same day, or day before. Apr 18, 2010

This is a fun lead, more interesting to me than the more popular Romper Room to the right. Don't think I'd call it a good beginner lead, though; some sections didn't seem 5.6-easy to me.
