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

Description

This route is easier, but headier than its neighbor and is not the better warm-up. Climb crimps and slopers up the right-most of the bolted lines to reach an anchor. There are some distances between bolts that can be mitigated with gear, but not great gear.
A poor choice for a beginner lead, if you have that in mind.

Location

This route is the right-most of the bolted routs to the left of Nevada Book and to the right of Split crack. This and 'Split Ends' both start from the top of a rounded ledge and near a nasty bush or two. Access their bases by fighting past a boulder in a funky gully below Nevada Book.

Protection

A handful of draws and a bad gear placement or two, maybe larger RP's in shallow cracks? I distinctly recall my partner laughing at my 1/2 buried brass HB micromate (a .33" cam) with 2 lobes in.

Fun, slabby climb. A little run out (for RR) at times, but not bad. Felt true-to-grade. Nov 20, 2016
