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

Description

A trad line in the Black Corridor? Yup. This route is on the left side of the lower section about 20 feet left of the boulders in the middle of the corridor. Start by clipping a bolt and head for the thin crack to the top. Build an anchor with gear and walk off right.

If your going to lead this route plan on not falling, the bolt won't help you much. Definitely harder than 5.10d. Apr 5, 2016

This route looked like a great challenge but the gear looked terrible so I lead the 5.10a to the right and placed two directional cams at the top (BD3 and wild country 2.5) and ran through the anchor setup to the right. The bottom moves are pure hell. There's a wide slopey pinch for the right hand and an awkward right hand side pull for the left. Step up on your right foot with a big move to another right hand side pull with the left hand. Again move up your right foot and place your right hand on a super small mini crimp and slide your left hand up just a tad to yet another right hand side pull. Big move again to a small upward facing flake with the right hand and then move the left hand out to a small crimp. From here I went left since the wall got even more bare.

The crack itself is nothing more than a 5.7 so once you make it, life is good.

This route is majorly sandbagged and shouldn't be lead. The first piece of pro is at least 30 feet up and the individual bolt that is on the wall is just below the crux move. Jun 27, 2013

this route is retarded. it's sandbagged as all hell and there's no gear until you're 50 feet up, aside from the one bolt at the bottom. avoid. Sep 29, 2011

is the crux down low on this one around the bolt? that area looks pretty thin and the cracks above don't look 10d hard, but of course i haven't been on it yet and i could be mistaken. can anyone comment on this? Sep 12, 2011

On 3/15/11, the ASCA replaced the bolt on this route with a 1/2" x 2.75" SS 5-piece. Sep 1, 2010
