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


This and Saddam's Mom are the 2 classics at the cliff. The start involves a funky move out of an alcove on to the face. Then climb along the parallel cracks and fight the pump to the anchor.


The obvious parallel cracks.


6 bolts


Thanks for the glue-ins John. They look pencil thin but held some good falls from my buddy today. Finally sent this thing after years of intermittent tries. And didn't pull anything off it Killer! Jan 20, 2015

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
Great moves on good stone. The cool parts about climbs like this is you get great stances from which to figure the moves out. Be ready to climb all the way through the chains.

We were just there on 2/6/14 and thought the cool old hangers were really bomber and the bolts were just fine. But then, what do we know anyway. Feb 10, 2014

Clipping the chains is the crux - yahoo. Feb 28, 2013
My good buddy Danger Dragon broke off a sizeable chunk just before the crux-soft routes like this are an ever-changing medium! (And no, it hadn't rained that week.) Mar 23, 2007
