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

Description

The crux is mid way a few moves above ledge in right slanting crack. Great exposure on steep varnished wall. Once at the top you can continue up and left to gain the anchors for Mercedes and top rope it. (if your so inclined)

Location

Rappel with 60 meter rope.

Protection

Standard gear to 3.5 camolot

don't know what matt is talking about, I brought gear to 3", used a lot of it. 2" cam in begin of flake is nice, another 1-2" cam fits in the weird holes leading up to crack, 0.5-1" cams in the jug rail leading out right, (the fun airy traverse near end) and as he said, plenty of small nuts.
nothing spectacular, but fun climbing for the grade. (feels 10c to me)

oh, and yes the bolts are rather old looking, manky hardware store stuff, be nice if some kind people replaced them... =) Nov 21, 2014

I brought gear to #3 Camalot and only placed micro nuts. Fun climb, I like the stone. The anchor hangers are homemade and the chains a little worn. Still good to rap on but I wouldn't go overboard. Jan 29, 2012
