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

Description

Follow the offwidth crack upward as you negotiate a series of not so obvious moves on not so bomber holds...

Location

This route follows the obvious offwidth crack toward the right side of the cliff.

Protection

When I climbed this route last winter (05') there were 3 or 4 bolts drilled on the face out to the left of the crack that could be used for protection OR protect with standard gear and a few larger pieces at the bottom.

Anchors at the top either way you protect...

Good bolts on this one-I led it on gear, don't reccommend. The FA was done with bolts according to Swain, Brock/McMillen doesn't include anything about this. I was getting my old school ire up...and then had to relax and shrug. The route isn't good enough to really stress about regardless. Jun 26, 2007

Bonus points if done as an off-chimney. Fun thrutch with bolts. Apr 30, 2013
Used the bolts to sport up and ran my rope through the two huge gated hooks hanging above this. Then the whole family top roped it. Fun for all. The kids could squeeze their whole bodies into the crack and use it as a chimney. The adults had to stem across the crack for decent footholds. Apr 8, 2015

Bolts are good but was an awkward climb. Got a bit reachy at the top and some of our newer climbers in the group really struggled, more than I would have thought considering the 5.9 rating. Poundcake and the other 5.9s are much better, imo Mar 19, 2017
