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


Peanut Butter and Jam is a typical Joe Herbst offering on the right hand side of the Chocolate Rocks featuring awkward offwidth moves.

Build an anchor at the top, walk off left to the slung boulder atop Mc-Crack-En and rap with one rope.


Standard rack with an emphasis on wide gear up to a #5 C4 Camalot and an optional green Big Bro. Small cams or Ballnutz protect the crux.

Wish I had read John's description above before attempting this one. Without a #5 Camalot, the last 20+ feet of awkward, flaring bomb bay/squeeze chimney is virtually unprotectable. The largest thing I had was a #4 Camalot and it was completely tapped out. Made for an exciting lead. Apr 1, 2007
