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

Description

This route proves more difficult for short people, and has sequences that are not all that obvious for a moderate climb. It serves as a regular warm-up.

Location

This is the third route on the right as you climb the hill.

Protection

Starts on a homemade hanger up to the anchors.

I'm 6 ft and also thought it harder than 5.8. Back when I did it I thought 5.8+ / 5.9-. My notes say something about "climb a bit left of bolt #2". Swain drilled these on the lead by hand, so bolts are at stances, not necessarily exactly at/on "cruxy" spots. Apr 19, 2017

On 2/8/11, the ASCA replaced 4 protection bolts and the anchor with 1/2" x 3.5" 5-piece bolts. The anchors are Fixe double ring hangers. Feb 9, 2011

maybe this was a 5-8 at one time but it is reachy and i.m.o a little harder than 5-8 ,perhaps holds have broken off , also beware of a couple of jugs so hollow sounding that you can beat them like a drum. i agree w/ gigette note a good one for someone just leading in this range, same go's for the 5-9 to its left.

Oooh...Brings back memories.

I made the mistake of leading this as a brand spankin new climber, after reading John Longs "How To Rock Climb" book, and only had top-roped two routes, and led one 5.7 prior to hopping on P.I.P. It was VERY SCARY for a new climber/leader. Good thing I didn't fall because it seemed like there were only 3 bolts on it (?). A good climb though, as long as you're not a newbie leader.

It seemed way harder than I thought a 5.8 should have been at the time. Maybe because I'm 5'2". Harder for short people, like Matt mentioned? ; ) Sep 28, 2006
