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

Description

An underrated and overlooked sister climb to nearby Straight Shooter, with everything including tips crack, flaky face, hand jams, a roof, a mantel, and easy-off chain anchors. Easy to toprope two other climbs on this face from same anchors. My partner felt this was 10a on toprope, I felt it was solid 9 and worth 3+ stars, not the *1* listed in the B/McM book.

Location

Flight Path Area encompasses enough ground to house 25 Starbucks if the property was on West Charleston; this particular spot is a rope length to the right of the right boundary of the Stick gully-maybe a ten minute walk from Straight Shooter.

Protection

Standard rack w/extra small cams

What an awesome, unheralded climb. Wow! Variety and sustained difficulty, very fun. Starts out like a miniature Straight Shooter and then goes through several awesome roofs with some of the best easy face climbing I have done at Red Rock above. Nov 18, 2012
