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

Description

Borrowed from Todd Swain's Classic Rock Climbs: Red Rocks.
"Given as a Christmas present! Start 8' right of the last route (Death Before Decaf-12b), at a shallow, left-facing corner by a small pine and oak. Clip 6 bolts as you climb along seams to a chain anchor."

Really a 1 move route, rest of it goes at 10something. Crux is about 1/3 of the way up but the fun doesn't stop until you're at the anchors!

Location

Follows obvious chalked up seam at a left-facing corner.

Protection

6 bolts to chain anchor

On Friday, February 21st 2014, the ASCA replaced all protection bolts and the anchor of this route with ClimbTech glue-in wave bolts. Feb 21, 2014

Thought this was quite good- forgot I had done it. If you have the moves dialed, it will feel pretty relaxed, but onsighting can be tricky. I think 5.11a is fair for this route, although its a good bit easier than the '5.11a' two routes to the right! Jan 4, 2014

This one isn't as hard as the grade given in the Swain book. Probably more like 10d. Makes a nice warm up. Jan 27, 2007
