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

Description

The hardest part of this route is getting to the start of it! I found that surmounting the steep bit at the bottom was a bit harder than the 5.7+ rating, but you can get a good nut or two in.

Follow the left-leaning crack til it ends, and then three bolts to the top.

Location

As of 2006, this is the furthest right route in the Flight Path area. It starts about 35 feet right of the huge right-facing corner.

Protection

Trad gear, three bolts on the face, and a shared fixed anchor at the top that you can rap or lower from.

If using the Handren guide for this route, pay attention to the written description, which is correct. The line marked on the photo is well to the right of the actual route, and if you do climb that line, you will encounter no redeeming qualities. Nov 12, 2016

Protection is good on this route. I recall placing (2) BD 0.5 and (2) 0.75 pieces. Some others too. Fun pulling over the mini-roof. Nov 28, 2011
