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


Up thin gray-streaked seam to right-facing slopey gray "crack" on steep headwall. As of December 2016 all the bolts are good/normal. Also, a broken hold has increased the difficulty to 5.14a.


Gray streak right of other project.

A cool boulder problem of a route! 13d. Spring of 2011 I broke off the left hand 'jug' around the third bolt or so... opps! thankfully the route still goes using a rattly finger lock right next to where the mini jug was. It'll change the foot beta (once above) for taller climbers too. Definitely a touch harder, but not sure if it quite warrants the 14a grade. Jan 14, 2012

I sent this 2 days ago and agree with the guidebook and all the locals I spoke with (including Jonathan Segrist who emailed me about it 3 days ago), the grade now with the broken hold felt like 14a to me (and that seems to be the consensus). It felt slightly easier to me than Herbivour Dyno-soar next to it.
Yoshimi is pretty dirty because it's in a water streak and gets soaked when it rains. It probably requires brushing all the holds before you try it (and between attempts). Dec 22, 2016
