Access Issue: Red Rock RAIN AND WET ROCK: The sandstone is fragile and is very easily damaged when wet. Details

Description

Perhaps the best route in this section. Some routefinding is needed. Careful getting to the first bolt--if you slip, it's a long way down!

Climb the face of the huge right-facing corner, past five bolts, to near the top, where it goes left around the arete.

Location

To get down, a seventy-meter rope (or doubles) is probably needed, unless you want to rap to the end of a sixty-meter rope, and then scramble down the bottom of the Man Behind the Screen crack/corner.

You can get a thin hand-size cam (e.g. #1 Camalot) in the horizontal break before the first bolt, but a ground anchor is strongly recommended for the belayer regardless.

I replaced the 2nd bolt on this route this spring--it was a good bolt with a bad thin SMC hanger, but since the head of the bolt was damaged I had to drill a new bolt and chop the old. Dec 21, 2006
