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

Description

The best route on the cliff in my opinion.

Start to the right and around the corner from Combination Corner and Spinach, on the face left of Minute Maid crack. Climb the featured dark varnished face past a series of horizontal breaks, which provide adequate protection possibilities.

Protection

A light rack of nuts and TCUs. Rap from 2-bolt anchor or scramble up and right to rap from tree atop Minute Maid.

Nice solid varnished rock, great benches for belayer, very enjoyable. Upgraded to 5.9 in Handren's guide. Friends from PA thought that a soft rating. Jan 13, 2009

I thought that the 5.6 rating in the Brock and McMillen guide was way soft. Great route though. Feb 2, 2009

Seemed like there were a couple of 5.8-5.9 moves. We speculated that a key hold or two may have come off over the years. Sort of an engaging lead at the grade, as the gear is small and not entirely obvious. The bolts at the top could really use a couple of short chains. Dec 4, 2013
