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

Description

About thirty feet left of Frogland is a small, right-facing corner. Another fifteen feet left is a larger, left-facing corner. Start here and climb up to the left end of the big ledge marking the first belay on Frogland. The second pitch is the same as pitch 2 of Bourbon Street. Pitch 3 goes straight up to the beginning of the good varnished rock, then moves right on easy ledges. Pitch 4 starts with a zigzag to the right, then back into an obvious chimney. Pitch 5 goes up and right on deteriorating rock, ultimately reaching broken third-class rock just west of the Whiskey Peak summit.

Other than possibly as a variation on pitch 1 of Frogland, there is not much reason to do this route. It was stumbled upon via a routefinding error while attempting Bourbon Street, which is a far better route.

Protection

Standard rack; maybe a few extras in the finger or thin hand size.
