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


Really good and fun route to combine in a day with Classic Corner with fun movements over somewhat run-out climbing between the bolts. The moves feel pretty so don't stress about the bolts too much!


This route is the south facing feature about 50 feet right of Classic Corner of Calico and just right of a chossy corner! Look for the four bolts up the face!


4 Bolts to the fixed anchors at the top!

This climb and the ones in this area are on the backside of the Coco Crag. Less than 5 minutes and an easy scramble.

So for clarification for those reading the comments above.... route is now 5 bolts to the fixed two bolt anchor. Supplemental cam placement behind a flake between 3 & 4 should you choose. Absolutely worth doing while in the area. Mar 14, 2014
Yes, I'm the "donk" (whatever the fuck that is) who did "the shit job" of retro-bolting the route that I put up free stance drilling from the ground up. Prior to adding this bolt, climbers had to crank on and step on some hollow sounding holds and make a 5.6-7 (?) move to clip the first bolt. Granted, having 2 bolts 12" apart is ugly, but if some newby (not some BAD-ASS like Aaron S) were to fall before making that first clip and take a 30 ft grounder, that would suck. And for this reason, I made the route safer for the bewildered herd (again, not for the BAD-ASSES like Aaron S). Feb 6, 2013

This route is tons of fun because the shared anchor with Attack Dogs lets you do tons of variations. My partner climbed the face between N.I.M.B.Y. and Attack Dogs and thought it rated about a 10b.

On N.I.M.B.Y., you can follow the chalk up to the bolts or traverse right of the chalk trail at any point to move up a grade or two in climbing challenge. Pretty cool!

Make sure you pull down and not out on the many flakes along the chalk trail. There are some stress fractures that suggest some of the flakes might break if torqued outward. We had nothing break on us while pulling downward on them. Mar 23, 2010

The first time I did this route I took along a few small pieces (tcu's, a few stoppers) and did place one piece to supplement the bolts. Probably overkill, but it made me feel better. There are a few slightly suspect holds so that extra piece was reassuring. This is a fun, worthwhile climb. Oct 6, 2009
One of the poeple who did the FA put that bolt in.

edit: I'm deleting my original message because it was unnecessarily mean-spirited. I still think that adding the retro bolt inches from the original first bolt was lame but I should not have been an ass about it. It's a sport area, bolt whatever you want. Mar 16, 2008
