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

Description

This is a great route that you have to climb. Pretty stout. Fun crack climbing down low, tricky crux mid-way up, follow the corner to a roof and a few psychological moves on to the face above. Take the faint crack right and up to the top of the cliff.

Location

This route is 50-100 feet to the right of Hidden Falls. Desend by rapping from a giant, slung chicken head or as per the standard Lower Tier descent.

Protection

Standard rack. Build your own anchor.

Looking at the cliff is a leftward slanting chimney that goes at about 5.2. It shares the same start as this route. The hardest part is at the bottom. This chimney is a pretty manageable downclimb unroped and also provides easy acess for potential top-roping. Mar 1, 2007

Super fun route, felt stout for a 5.9

Anyone know what the grade is if you hand traverse out left at the corner rather than going straight up? Apr 20, 2016
