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

Description

Fun climb featuring really cool moves through a lieback past the second bolt! The 10c comes at the beginning moving out of the smooth corner onto the lower angled face above and then is about 5.9.

Location

Located about 10 feet right of NIMBY route, just look for the smooth small corner. Route is pretty well protected and recommended!

Protection

5 Bolts will get you to the fixed anchors above and are shared with Welcome to NIMBY Town.

I feel pretty confident in saying it's still probably closer to 10b and that grade only at the notable crux clipping or passing the second bolt. 1st lap, exited left then up what is steep but likely 5.9 terrain. On the lower went straight up over the second bolt and found the moves probably easier although you likely wouldn't clip the bolt until the hands above. A fall at that point could be grim as the ledge below the dihedral is near.

Very fun - all these routes make for an excellent visit to the crag. Mar 14, 2014

The move out of the corner swinging around onto the face is pretty hard, but the moves after that to the anchor are steep and balancy. I would say .10a for the rest of it. Great pro, pretty good rock, looks like the bolts had been moved lower from their original placements. Dec 8, 2012
