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

Description

Start just to the left of the curving arch of Arch Enemy and climb the slab to a right-facing corner. Excellent climbing on good rock leads to a belay ledge about 160 feet up. Pitch 2 continues up the corner to a roof, where the rock quality declines abruptly. Traverse right under the roof on loose rock with shaky pro. Finish via the tunnel at the top of the arch. A more civilized option for the second pitch would be to traverse right on varnished ledges to the belay/rap station on Arch Enemy.

P-1 is a blast!
I would have given this climb 3 stars if it weren't for the loose rock on the traverse under the roof of P-2.
I pulled off a frisbee sized chunk of crumbly rock when following Larry on this pitch. Nice lead Scary Larry! I would have peed my pants, if I was leading it.
Climbing/finishing up through the tunnel of P-2 was awesome! Apr 6, 2006

This route had so much promise; pitch one was great but I backed off of this route at the crux. Bad pro and chossy rock here, unfortunately. John Apr 7, 2006
