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

Description

Fun route that's a little burly at the start.

Protection

Standard rack to 2". The anchor consists of a bunch of slings around a tree on a ledge at the top. The slings have two rap rings on them.

This route is safe and way more fun than you'd expect. Worthwhile. Jan 18, 2015

Friend lead this route and I followed. Bottom crux was protected with a yellow TCU then a #2 C4. You can placed the 1st piece, lower down then clip it from a good stance Jan 19, 2013

Crux is at bottem & has good pro & fun moves. The middle is easy & a bit runout. The rap is off a triple bush at the top. One of the 3 bushes is completely dead as of 11/2009.
The route No Laughing Matter starts 20 feet right of the anchor. Nov 18, 2009

Really enjoyable route. (Darn it, it's too short!) The opening moves up past the first little roof are super fun and protect well. I think the R rating comes in at the top for the last 12 feet where it's easy climbing but offers no protection. Nov 25, 2007

Agreed, no "R" on this route as the entire thing protects easily. Bring .75-2". Fun opening moves!! Mar 6, 2007

I saw no danger at all. You can sew the roof thing up and then it is over. Neat route for about 12 feet. Rap out of the tree at the top. Feb 14, 2007

Not "R". You can get a good finger sized cam at the left end of the rooflet that would keep you off the deck if you blow the stem. Four feet farther out the mini roof takes a good hand sized piece, after that the route is basically over. If you're short, stretch out for this one...the crux stem is a bit wide. Watch out for ticks from the tree/shrub at the belay. Feb 14, 2007

I just copied the rating out of the guidebook (Roxanna's). And I agree, you ought to be solid at the grade (whatever it is) to hop on this one. Last summer's fire has done away with the shrub that would have broken your fall. Jan 17, 2006

this route is 5.9+ in the book, but you need to be a .10ish leader to get on it because the crux is a no-fall situation- blow it and you're decking no matter how much gear you put in....but it is still only .9+....not quite .10a!

good fun, though. Jan 16, 2006
