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


This route is awesome! Probably one of the top four routes in the corridor if you can climb at this grade. Climb the easy holds up to the third bolts and then crimp your way to a great left handed undercling. This will require smearing you feet on the way up. There is a two finger pocket for your right hand, followed by a few more crimps as you move upward. The top section to the anchors is relatively easy climbing after the crux.


This line was bolted after Roxanna's new guide was published, so it is not included in her topo. It is the fourth route on the right as you enter the corridor from the lower approach, and follows the obvious thin crack to a huge undercling flake.


Seven bolts to the new chain anchor.

be mindful of the bad rock out left above the undercling at mid-height. going left and you risk causing rockfall (it happened twice today) on parties below. go straight up, despite the tough look of it, its not too bad. Mar 7, 2009

Just before the crux is (was) a good sidepull/gaston (depending on how you use it) that I completely tore off and nearly hit my belayer. I put a large "X" on the flaky thing and the rest of the hold will certainly pull sooner or later. Be careful. Bad ass crux moves! Sep 28, 2011

This climb deserves more stars. I don't want to give away beta (although my beta sometimes sucks :P), but the crux move was awesome and a rarity for sport climbing (at least what I have climbed at RR). Definitely doing it again Apr 10, 2013

Very crimpy/smeary crux - unsure if something has broken off or maybe my sequencing was poor, but crux felt really hard compared to other 11a in the area. Climbing before and after was fun/easy. May 26, 2014

The GIANT flake on the route sounds pretty darn hollow - pull gently! Feb 18, 2015
Got shut down at the obvious crux. Guy after me got through after a few attempts with some interesting beta, but said the bottom left of the flake moved on him and is ready to go any day. Belayer should stand right of the flake at/after the crux. Mar 14, 2016

WARNING: the large flake that is a saving grace after the crimpy crux is ready to go. 3 huge white X's mark it. Without the flake, the moves between bolts become an easy 5.12 climb. I would use caution climbing this....The crux seems to have lost holds (?) and is maybe a harder climb than 11a. Nov 20, 2016

I don't know if some holds have broken off, but the crux of this felt very hard to me. I would say 11c+, possibly even 11d. Apr 19, 2017

Definitely think holds have broken off since this climb was originally graded. Harder than any 11a sport climb I've done, and I've been on a number of 5.11's-12's. The current crux may be a bit height dependent, only because my partner (6') was able to use the left foothold that I couldn't reach. Jan 2, 2018
The first bolt has been replaced on this route. Sep 14, 2018
