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


"Start 90' uphill of Battery Powered, below a seam leading through the left edge of a large varnished patch shaped roughly like Australia. Scamper past 5 bolts to a chain anchor. A good route."
Borrowed from Todd Swain's Classic Rock Climbs: Red Rocks.


90' uphill from Battery Powered, on the left side of "Australia"


5 bolts, chain anchors

A .5 c4 before the ledge and a .4 c4 at the ledge seemed to fit well to keep you from possibly decking at 30ft. Jan 2, 2010

On 2/8/11, the ASCA replaced 5 protection bolts and the anchors on this climb with 1/2" x 3.5" 5-piece bolts. The anchors were equipped with Fixe double ring hangers. Feb 9, 2011

A hold must have broken off just as you enter the dark patch... Definitely not 10a any more. The rest of the climb is super fun.
Could use a single bolt to protect the mantle down low. Why have to high ball or use pro on what is obviously a sport climb? Oct 18, 2016
Climbed it on 2016-10-17 and the climb seemed to be in 5.10 range. Michel le Duff commented that it might have lost some holds around the lower part of the dark patch. I thought the holds were fine just not in the crack but a foot to the left in the left edge of the dark patch.

I also found need for gear to protect the lower 30 feet until you get to the first bolt quite annoying. The climbing is easy (~5.5) but it should be considered a mixed route. Oct 21, 2016
