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


This climb is more slabby in nature than the other routes in the corridor. No one move is a crux, but several of the moves require balance.


This is now the first route on the left as you enter the corridor. This line was bolted after Roxanna's new guide was published, so it is not included in her topo.


Several bolts to a shiny new chain anchor.

This is a good route, it follows a real nice line. The second bolt seems a little high, however. The 5.9 rating seems about right. Jun 27, 2006

The description if perfect; not really hard but does require some balance so don't expect a walk up! Look for the anchors kinda off to the left up top around a bulge. Aug 14, 2006

the first bolt of this route has gone missing, making it fairly dangerous to lead if a stick clip isnt available.

a bummer too, as this is the most fun i've had on a 5.9 in the corridor in a long time! Mar 7, 2009

"the first bolt of this route has gone missing"

That's a bummer. See my comment above: the second bolt is "a little high". Mar 7, 2009

As of today, Sept. 12, 2009, this route has had the first bolt (previously missing), the 5th bolt (previously missing), and the 6th bolt (completely stripped) replaced. The anchors, which were loose, have also been tightened. All equipment was courtesy of the A.R.I. Sep 12, 2009

Good Route... Fun warm up for the area. I thought getting to the first bolt was a little reachy for shorties like me (5'2") but you have the undercling and a great little ledge so not really a problem. The next move right after the first bolt is very reachy but fun. For me, I used the ledge for my right hand rather than the undercling and got both feet as high as possible and went for the next chalky ledge up. FUN MOVE!!! The rest of the route is pretty straight forward, definitely balancy and sometimes heady, but everything you need is there! Nov 26, 2012

Looks like they fixed up all the bolts except the third one. Its a spinner. I hopped up there with the intention of tightening it but it needs to be hammered/glued.

Other than that fun route. I would say crux is the beginning and it appears to be entirely height based. Dec 1, 2015

Just did this route over the weekend, the first bolt feels high and tough to get to for a 5.9. Would not recommend as a warm up. Dec 13, 2016

Not really my cup of tea. After a couple of initial hard moves, it's a balancy slab to the anchors. Oct 4, 2018
