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

On the far left side of the dome. Climb the face to a left leaning seam through some improbable moves on the face (1 bolt).

Pretty fun route, varied climbing and long, a nice change of pace from the sport climbing in the crowded black corridor.

Clip the first bolt between the 2 cracks about 15 feet off the ground, then follow the left trending crack to a bolt at the small bulge, and follow the crack up and right. There's another bolt in the face somewhere too, so if you use all 3 bolts, it's not PG13. Belay below the first bush you come to, I used a #3, #0.4, and a sideways #4 nut for the belay. Easy fifth class up the left trending crack gully leads you to the top. Head south and look for the cairns, and then go down the gully back to the base for a quick descent.

Use long runners to reduce drag, I used 8 runners + 4 quickdraws for it all. Protects well with a standard rack + offset & standard nuts, and was easy 5.9 face climbing for the majority of the route. Nov 14, 2016
