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

Description

Ten feet to the right of Arm Forces, climb a wide crack and pass through a weakness in the large overhang. Easy climbing continues up and right to a large ledge. To descend, scramble up and right to the top of a gully. A short rappel from the large pine tree leads to the broken lower gully.

Stout for 5.7; I could believe 5.8 or even easy 5.9 (body size matters, I think). Single rack to #5 Camalot worked well, but I lost track of how many times I leapfrogged the #3 -- more than one of those might be in order. Apr 24, 2015

Alternately, downclimb 20' (easy) to Arm Forces and rap from 2-bolt anchor. Apr 1, 2007
