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

Description

This climb is pumpy and has small balancy holds and moves. A majority of these would not be hard but for the fact that they are 'facing the wrong way.' Careful until you get the second clip to avoid a bad fall.

Location

This is the second route in as one descends down the Pier Gully. It is distinguished by side-pull crimpers and pinches most of the way up, lacking hte jugs of other nearby routes.

Protection

5 bolts + slings for the top. IT could be TR'd after walking down the pier and dropping a few slings and anchors onto the bolts atop it.

Some tricky balance and seemingly backwards holds, but that's the charm of this route. I found it to be a good challenge and worth the effort. Jun 23, 2011
Ground fall potential if your belayer is non-attentive. Wierd moves will have you wondering why you are climbing this route. Apr 19, 2010

This route is way spooky- blowing the second or third clip could suck. The route is okay, but nowhere near as cool as the others in the area...worth a TR. Mar 17, 2007
