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

Description

This is a long route, and serves as a good warm-up. Climb the vertical varnished face through a series of high feet and good holds to the top. A few sections seemed to be confusing to the less experienced climbers in our group.

This route used ALL of a 50m rope, so it would be wise to knot the end of the rope as a protective measure when lowering-off.

*NOTE* This route is still relatively new as of this posting (11/06) and although I spent some time cleaning more of the broken rock, there is considerable breakage of the rock edges that haven't yet been worn down. I would advise wearing a helmet to belay until these routes get some more traffic.

Location

This route is located one line to the right of the far left end of HSTD. Head left of the obvious roof behind an outcrop. You climb/shimmy/stem up a small chimney to a sloping ledge below this and the two other routes on each side of it.

Protection

Nine bolts to the chain anchors.

As of 7/28 some of the bolts are spinning and there are two Xs marked. Seemed safe enough to climb, but be aware. Jul 28, 2012
