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


Start at a beautiful dihedral with a 2" crack for
~ 20', continue up over the roof, around the bulge, into the chimney, exit out onto the face
and follow face features to the 2 bolt anchor.

you can lower with a 70 meter and have a top rope. Apr 21, 2007

The first half is a super classic hand crack/corner. The second half is, uh, not so classic. May 3, 2007

another good route. The top is a bit runout but it is not the hard part of the route either. this route is also 130 feet. A 70 meter will work. Nov 5, 2007

This is a great route. Laser cut layoff at the start, cruise around some blocks, stem the chimney corner and face to the left so you never enter it and climb the final face and crack. A wonderful warm up for the crack right next door. Jan 8, 2011
70 meter=230 feet. Divide by two, 115. Extra couple of feet lying on the ground, 105-110', max. I understudied for the Count on Sesame Street.

This route has a couple of massive loose blocks on it. I really enjoyed the pitch, but will caution that pulling too hard on some stuff could kill your partner pretty easily. If I get back out there, I want to work on the anchor, since the top bolt crossloads any biner clipped to it and it's building into a slingfest up there; maybe I'll take time to trundle the beasts, too. After moving my pack 50 feet away...

I used 3 #1s, a 2, a nut, and a 0 TCU to protect the pitch. More is available, just a heads up that there's a lot of #1 happening. Jan 23, 2012

Nice tight hands for <30 feet. Then face climbing with questionable rock. Jan 12, 2015
