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


This route combines some slab climbing (not my forte) with some face climbing. It is a long warm-up. Be sure to tie a knot in the belay end of your rope if using a 50m cord, especially if belaying from down the ramp!


When you reach the alcove of California Crag, head west about 100' on a white slab. It's the red arete about 30' right of a water streak.


8 bolts to anchors (This is an update to the Swain book which says 6 bolts... apparently 2 more were added).

kind of a 1 move wonder at the start on not great rock, then a soft rock thin section and a bit of 5.8 climbing. OK if you just need a final route in the sun. Feb 28, 2013
