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


Route is found on a separate rock face than Straight Shooter. About 15-20ft to the right. Route starts in a right facing corner/flake. Overhanging with horizontal crack mid way that can be protected with medium cam or clip the bolt just above.

Climbing past the bulge is the crux which eases if you move slightly right.


20 feet right of Straight Shooter. Short overhanging crack with bulge.


4 bolts to chain anchors

[Hide Comment] Easy, steep and positive holds... until you reach the last bolt and try to move onto the summit via contrived moves on a forced line. Move left 4 feet and do the easy finish. Good route! Mar 6, 2007

[Hide Comment] you can plug a couple of stoppers after the second bolt which works really well. Mar 27, 2007

[Hide Comment] I agree with Russ. The contrived direct line (at the third bolt) is more like a 11b move, but the climbing just to the left totally neglects this crux and makes the entire climb 10b/c. Apr 1, 2007

[Hide Comment] The bottom is a hoot, the top is contrived. Straight up is deperate, going left is easy but a big jog left and back. Jan 8, 2011
