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


The start is quite balancy and a bit technical. After the so-so rest on the ledge launch into the pumpy crux section and try to hang on till the top.


First route left of the crack that seperates the two faces.


5-7 bolts

Just a note - the 4th bolt is missing a hanger on this climb and I had to tighten bolts by hand while climbing the line to the left of this on. Might be time to re-bolt this cliff. I will be more than happy to do it. Anyone want to help? Nov 22, 2007
If you want to come out of retirement to do some replacement, I'm in. Let's put in glue-ins! Dec 5, 2011

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

Don't know if something broke on this, but this felt WAY harder than the two routes to the left. Maybe 11c? Very very sustained, without many rests. Feb 21, 2015

@Justin- nope, it's always been wicked hard for the grade. it's a fairly well known sandbag for those who have actually been out to the Holiday wall. Feb 21, 2015
