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

Description

Significantly harder than "Just in from L.A.", and I found this route to be long, somewhat overhanging, and tiring. The crux involves clipping and moving past the 4th bolt. Again, be sure to tie a stopper knot in the belay end of the rope depending on where you belay from.

Location

Start 100' left of the main alcove of California Crag, and immediately right of Cal. West, on the overhanging red arete.

Protection

8 bolts and an anchor.

This climb is pretty sandy, seems a bit contrived in relation to the arete and .10 next to it, and sports some holds that do not inspire a lot of confidence in the realm of solidity. Nov 15, 2010
