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

Description

Really kind of a bomb because of its contrived nature, not because of the rock. Beginning right of Vagabonds (but left of the boulders that separate the corridor) this route starts up a short steep section involving a move from a digit hold to a shelf above. Can be easily cheated by just reaching right for a ramp and climbing via that. Two bolts protect the crux, with 5 more to the anchors.

This is a gimme 5.12. More like a boulder problem at the bottom followed by a bunch of 5.8/9 climbing.

Agreed with Matt.. It's a V3/4 into a 5.9 face climb. Aug 12, 2007

my first 12, and onsight. i think i dyno'd the first move to a sloper on a small ledge??? (this is back in 1994) i was having a great day after almost a week of an ingrown toenail giving me grief that killed any climbing i had to do small footwork on. the hotsprings near bishop fixed that....... everything felt easy and i had no clue i was on the right route because the first moves felt simple and the rest of the climb easy and uneventful.......

Great Boulder problem and moves off the deck. I think it is soft and give it a 11d. I didn't like the run out from 2nd to 3rd, holy cow. Like 30ft or something. Yes easy climbing but one slip and a really hard deck. Mar 21, 2018
