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

Description

This route starts about 30 feet to the right of Pretty In Pink. Big holds lead to a bouldery crux. Easier climbing leads you to a tricky bulge and then the chains.

Location

The Hunter S. Thompson Dome can be approached from the Sweet Pain Wall or by passing through the Black Corridor and exiting the upper level. This route starts about 30 feet to the right of Pretty In Pink on the far right side of the dome.

Protection

On 1/10/12, the ASCA replaced the 3rd, 4th, 5th, 7th, and 8th protection bolts on this route. All but the last are 1/2" x 3 1/2" Carbon Steel 5 piece bolts, with the last bolt being a 1/2" x 2 3/4" Stainless Steel 5 piece.

The 3rd, 5th and 8th bolt were both moved somewhat due to dubious rock quality in their original placements. Nov 13, 2011

This area is a little unsorted; this is the climb directly to the right of Squire. Well protected at the crux. Nov 18, 2012
