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

Description

Overhanging face which climbs out a series of roofs before the crux and up the head wall. The climbing is not straight forward as you use slopers, pockets, edges, and heel hooks.

Location

The route is the first route left of the main chimney (5.8) as you are looking directly at the wall. Start under the series of roofs and lower off of the anchors at the top.

Protection

The route is well protected clipping six bolt en route to the fixed anchors.

The climbing up to the third bolt is awkward and difficult. After that the climbing improves and is pretty similar to the other routes near by. Worth a shot, but not the best line on the wall IMO. Dec 9, 2011

I have just the opposite thought on the route: I found the climbing through the first three bolts to be interesting (though I agree somewhat awkward) and what makes the route in my opinion. Beyond that things revert to standard Red Rocks pulling. Dec 20, 2012

Probably my favorite route at the cliff. The lower section is cryptic and bouldery- it pays to spend some time on it and figure out the slick way of doing it that makes it fun and interesting. Trying to thug through it would probably tick the grade up a notch or two.

Also, as of today, there are now tow hooks on the anchor for future use courtesy of the ASCA. Feb 22, 2013
