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

Description

A fun trip up hollow rock, with aesthetics typical of beautiful varnished Red Rock sandstone. Might be pg13 or R; I got plenty of gear but recall some gongy thin flakes that flexed quite a bit and were the best spots available for pro.

Location

When descending Jackass Flats or any of the other routes on Windy Peak East Face, this route is just right of the spot where the gully flattens out-look for an attractive chocolate flake/crack climb. Descend with a 60m rope to the right from fixed mank or scramble off down the familiar gully to the right.

Protection

Funky but frequent, I used up to a #3 camalot

The beta for finding this route had us going up into the mouth of the Diet Delight descent gully. There is red dihedral up there, but that is not the route. Instead, look at the same level as the base of the Main Wall across the gully. You have to move maybe 100 - 150 yards climber's left from the mouth of the gully to reach these routes. If you are climbing up very much you have gone wrong... Mar 17, 2010

Very protectable, there was one pillar/flake that I didn't want to pull too hard on or put protection next too. Walked off the gully to the climbers left, definately the crux, gully was almost as steep and very chossy/brushy. Feb 21, 2009

I thought this route had great gear from bottom to top...definitely not PG-13 or R, IMHO. It's a very cool-looking line with fun moves that are easy for the grade. May 1, 2007
