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

Description

This is an EXCELLENT sport route on the left side of the Coco Crag about 3 feet right of the obvious chimney. Varied movements; great protection; and climbing that is much steeper than it appears from the ground; as good as any sport route in Red Rocks at the grade IMHO. Brock guidebook says 10b but it might be 10a'ish??

Location

This is the first obvious bolted line just right of the chimney. Rappel from the anchors with one 60 meter rope; a 50 might make it too??

Protection

8 Bolts lead to some anchors on the slab above. The route is well protected and climbs great.

This was the crown jewel of a climb for our last day in Red Rocks - wish we came to this area first than trying to get on the low grade trad climbs in the Mecca. Shaded mid-day. It actually got a little chilly for us we had to use the ledge towards the top of this climb for a little warm up for the fingers. Did this in late-April.

I'm giving this a classic in comparison to the other climbs on this wall and everything else in Calico - next time we're hitting Big Bad Wolf. Jun 15, 2017

Nice route, I believe easier if you stay left and just stretch back right a little to get the clips. Felt like a solid 10a. Really well protected, although I counted 9 bolts to the top! May 1, 2017

didn't climb as well as it looks, the holds take you left and the bolts take your right, resulting in an awkward bit of climbing. Fun route nonetheless Apr 22, 2016

Fun climb with a bit of variety--technical, balance moves as well as a bulge or two to pull. A wee bit more challenging if, through the first few blots, you stay right. Length: 70 feet--not very important to most, but the rope I had that day was a 45m (chopped 50m), and I measured a half length at 74'. I had approx. four feet remaining before climber got to anchor.

Anchor replaced with half inch stainless and mussies courtesy the ASCA. Mar 26, 2014

A joy of a climb! It has a little bit of everything mixed in. Add to that some nice views at the top and being away from the hustle and bustle of the popular crags and you have yourself a gem - definitely worth the hike out! Apr 28, 2012

i think the grade works if you stick to the bolts at the roof/arete, it's easy to go waay left and pull up on dyna-jugs but it's sketchily away and around from the bolt... that's my take on it anyway. it IS fun, the one on the right is awesome too! Jul 20, 2009
