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

Description

A fun route up the dihedral left of Sunny and Steep. Power up the overhanging dihedral and the work the delicate face above to a two bolt anchor with tow hooks for lowering.

^^^^^^My six masters' degrees in engineering tell me that 2 drops of loctite save these kinds of posts and the eventual removal of the hardware that's paid for by kind donations.

That's just the benefit of spending 80 years in engineering school.

Or, having three brain cells, total. Stapled together. With duct tape backup. Mar 2, 2013

For not being so steep this route has a surprising amount of pump to it! Good climbing on good holds- save some juice for the top. Dec 12, 2011
