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


The left handed crimp off of the left-facing jug flake near the bottom is definitely harder than 5.9 as is suggested by the Swain guidebook. The rest of the route is mellow.


About 10 feet left of A Man in Every Pot, and in front of the rightmost of two similarly-sized scrub oak bushes.


3 bolts (I think a 4th was added after the Brock book's printing) up to the chain anchors.

I actually enjoyed this route quite a bit....especially the upper moves; fairly continuous. Had to do it again. Aug 21, 2007

On 5/19/10 the ASCA replaced the first bolt and the anchor on this route. In addition, mussy hooks were added to the anchor. All bolts are 1/2" x 3.5" 5-piece. May 20, 2010

Fun route a little ran from the last bolt top anchor, but really fun. Nov 9, 2012

There is a fourth bolt, eliminating the formerly run-out finish. The first bolt is rather high; suggest either stick-clip or bring a TCU for the crack prior to the bolt. Mar 17, 2015

I would also call this 10 a/b. the move after the first bolt and to the fourth bolt were much harder than the 9+ rating led me to expect. I thought it was much harder than the 10a (Handren) to the right.

Fun. I also thought the first bolt was quite easy to get to, though high. Mar 11, 2016

First bolt is definitely high, but it's like 5.5 jugs getting there. Nov 6, 2016

I thought the crux was reachy and that added to the difficulty for me, hence 10a/b. Oct 23, 2017

I echo the sentiments below. If Mac and Ronnie in Cheese is considered 5.10a in the book, then this should be at least 5.10b by the same standards. The crux was reachy and the holds a bit awkward for 5.9, maybe something broke off since the route was originally graded? Dec 2, 2017
