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