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

Description

Start up Cat Walk and then head up and right on a right-angling ramp to reach the first bolt. Enjoyable moves on good edges head up the vertical face to anchors at the lip.

This was the first bolted route at the crag and it originally started directly from the ground with one additional bolt (5 total).

  • Current guidebooks list this route as "It's a Bitch".

Location

Located on the left side of the wall just right of Cat Walk, making this the second bolted line from the left.

Protection

5 bolts, bolted anchor (all 1/2" SS)

First bolt is a little high with a very dangerous landing. A stick-clip might be nice. Oct 16, 2009

On 2/2/11, the ASCA replaced 5 protection bolts on this route along with the anchor. All protection bolts and one anchor bolt (the lefthand one) are 1/2 x 2.75" SS 5-piece. The right hand anchor bolt is a 1/2 x 5" SS 5-piece. The anchor is now equipped with mussy hooks. Feb 2, 2011

In response to the High first bolt. Solid climbing with a ledge for feet move you up right, via jugs until you can clip the first bolt. I dont like high first bolts, and thought that this was a well placed bolt. maybe 5.1 climbing to the first bolt. jugs at each bolt make clipping a breeze. Fun, but i thought it was less fingery than its neighbor 5.10a Feb 21, 2012

Fun route. Here's a time lapse of a semi-rad ascent: youtu.be/glyWoJhTHx0. Jan 19, 2014
