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

Description

Begins at the second left-facing flake, 5 feet right of Haunted Hooks. Stick clipping the first bolt is recommended, as the spot from which you clip it has a slopey and somewhat sandy foot position, and I've seen someone unexpectedly come off there. Great Red Rocks face climbing up 7 bolts through 2 cruxes. One of the best routes on the wall!

Location

The third route on the wall from the entrance, 5 feet past Haunted Hooks.

Protection

7 draws and a couple more for the anchor.
For me the crux was pulling past the roof feature towards the top. After 5 lunges for the jug, I finally stuck it and continued on with the onsight of the climb. Definitely a dramatic climb for me! Feb 26, 2012

On 3/15/11, the ASCA replaced the anchor on this route. The new bolts are 1/2" x 2.75" SS 5-piece equipped with double ring rap hangers. Mar 15, 2011
