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

Description

The refrigerator wall is true to its name and is a cool respite even on hot days in Vegas. The climbing on this route is great but this route should only be attempted by a confident 5.10 leader.

Begin on a a small ramp on the left side of the wall. This route requires some route finding and follows a series of discontinous cracks. Take pro when you get it as it is not always present. Continue up cracks and face trending rightward. The crux is on the lower part of the route but the pro will keep you interested all the way to the top. End on a nice grassy ledge with bolted anchors.

Rap with two ropes.

Protection

a regular rack with the addition of small nuts and cams.

This one is most definitely not R so don't let that put you off from doing the route. It's one of the best 10a's in the park. Take a double rack and you can use almost every piece if you want. Save a .1, .2 & .3 for the last 15' of hard climbing getting into the finishing corner. And if you don't want to solo that corner save a #2 & #3 camalot. You could even place a # 4 if you want to carry that thing all the way up the climb.

You can lower all the way down with an 80M, otherwise you will need two ropes. Mar 22, 2015

The length of this climb is about 170 Ft. and the pro is mostly small wires and or cams with some doubled mid size camalots (.5) Take some/all small aliens or similar size cams. You'll need them. Great climbing positions thin face moves and smearing. I used a full set of C3's numerous small wires and Camalots from #2 on down. I also had 2 red link cams. "They are the greatest!" I went through 15 runners and wished I had more. Apr 15, 2007
