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


The middle of the three 5.8s on the wall. Brief Encounter is to the left and Boxer Rebellion is to the right. VERY well protected!


Many bolts to 2-bolt anchor.


On October 3, 2008 the first bolt was missing from this climb. Oct 6, 2008

I don't think there's a bolt missing on this route...

Most of the routes on this wall went up in the 90s. The first ascent of this route was made in 2005, so maybe a different idea of where the first bolt needs to be?

As it is, the first bolt isn't much higher than most would be willing to boulder. I had no trouble getting to it on secure holds, and I'm barely comfortable leading 5.7 trad.

I had a good chuckle, though, watching people try to stick clip the first bolt by hoisting each other up with the stick fully extended.

My favorite route on the wall. Jan 3, 2010

On 1/14/10, the ASCA replaced the missing first bolt on this route with a 1/2" x 3.5" 5-piece(there was an empty bolt hole about 12' up- visible in the picture, just left of the rope and just above the big jug at the bottom of the photo)- the bolt was placed about 10" to the right of the original and the old hole was patched. The move was due to rock quality concerns and to ensure the draw would not hang over an edge. The route now has 8 good bolts. Jan 14, 2010
