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

Description [Edit]

Keep Your Powder Dry climbs the steepest part of the Trophy Wall. It starts on jugs, moves into several cruxes and gives you a rest on a ledge more than half way up. Execute through a few more vertical boulder problems and clip the chains at the very top of the Trophy Wall.

Location [Edit]

The very center of the Trophy Wall; climb out the steepest part of wall.

Protection [Edit]

10 bolts, usually has fixed draws

The 5th bolt is still loose on this route and unable to be tightened. The first four chains no longer have biners on them. They were gone when we arrived.

EDIT: (5/21/15) Was just back today. Someone put brand new biners on first five draws. Thank you Simon. May 16, 2015

The chain link on the crux bolt of this thing has been eaten quite a ways through by the hanger. Could use a new link, and I'd hang your own draw in the meantime. Jan 2, 2017

This thing could really use some glue-ins.
Couple of bolts are really getting flexy/loose 7 days ago
