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

Description

The best route on the cliff. The crux involves a long move past the third bolt. You can step around left on the ledge to get a rest or climb straight up (this probably makes the route 12a). From the ledge a scary but not as hard as it looks move back around right will get you back into 5.10 climbing to finish the route.

Location

climbs the arete to the right of When the Cat's Away.

Protection

6 bolts

On Friday, January 24th 2014, the ASCA replaced all protection bolts and the anchor of this route with ClimbTech glue-in wave bolts. Jan 24, 2014

Interesting route- a hard (and reachy) crimp crux down low (getting to the 3rd bolt) and then a deceptive bouldery crux up higher with the bolt at your feet makes this thing feel pretty hard for the grade. Jan 4, 2014
