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


Really fun route with a crux right after clipping first bolt (somewhat difficult clip at second bolt). Seems like an aweful long ways to the third bolt but the climb is a tad bit easier going here. Move toward the huge hueco at the top and pull the really fun bulge to finish out; really fun route!!


This is the last route on the left wall (East FAcing) in the upper section of the Black Corridor, can't miss it!


6 Bolts will have you seeing the chains on top for your rappel.

Assuming this route is the one I think it is, a bolt near the top (4th?) is missing a hanger and leads to a long scary run-out (although, on 9ish terrain). Jan 15, 2010

Scary up top from what I remember. Seemed like far falls were going to be the norm if it came to that. Jun 10, 2011

Bolt in hueco still missing a hanger. If solid at the grade it's not a big deal, almost makes you feel like you're not sport climbing in the corridor for a minute. Wonderful route, a must-do. Jun 13, 2013

Fantastic route. Ideal warm up. Felt it was well bolted. A reachy crux down low leads to easy, incredibly fun climbing through Huecos. Soft for grade. May 26, 2014

I agree this route felt a bit soft for the grade but it's still one of my favorites in the Corridor. Feb 4, 2016

Did something break here? This is a super reachy route if you're short. I had to basically dyno to the ledge, and the moves above the ledge are also super reachy. You will hit the ledge if you fall from the second bolt as a warning. Jan 10, 2017

Really fun route! Huecos are cool and the start is fun. Do it if you're in the area. Apr 17, 2017

Route should get a PG-13 because run out to second bolt leaves you exposed to fall onto ledge/crack. Still a great route. Apr 4, 2018
