Access Issue: 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 more of a mind game than others, due to the height of the first bolt. (This is also why I gave it a PG-13 rating.) Otherwise a fun route, that is long enough to serve as a warm-up for the routes on the opposing wall.

Location

This route is the second to last route on the east (right) side of the corridor. You have to walk nearly all the way to the back of the corridor to reach the start.

Protection

7 bolts to anchors.

Definitely a PG-13 route, the first bolt is somewhat high, I climbed slightly right of the bolt and was able to clip with a high left hand. I believe the middle of the route is a sustained .10 and the last 3 bolts are just fun :). 2 Bolts at the top for anchors. (Oct-2010) Nov 18, 2010

Agreed on the PG-13, if you don't get on the ledge correctly to get the first clip you'll find yourself in a sticky situation that's not down climbable. Bring a good mental game and try not to poop your pants.

If you don't feel like finishing the line you can always mantle over the ledge and clip to the closer anchors, just as fun. 4 bolts to anchors in that case, I'd call it a 10a pg13 Oct 3, 2015

Walk to the back of the corridor. Locate the line of bolts that lead up to a right facing corner topped by a roof. The corner and roof are about 1.5 meters long, each. Indeed the first bolt is off the deck. I found the crux to be getting stood up to the side of the corner-roof. As with most Red Rocks routes, holds break off and they generally get harder with time. This route felt much harder than the grade. Note that a new route went in to the right of this line in November 2016. Dec 4, 2016

This route has a 4-bolt extension. Expect some very crumbly holds, a couple difficult clips, and a tough-to-decipher crux at the top... but the climbing is fun, I swear! 11b/c? Apr 11, 2018
