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

P1 to the slings is great climbing with super gear and fun moves. P2 looked like crap. Do this May 7, 2014

Fun, but chossy roof. Make sure your belayer isn't standing too close to the wall. Mar 23, 2014

The first 60' of this route climbs a fun 5.10 crack up to a mess of slings. The final 30 or so feet go up a steep chossy face that doesn't look the least bit appealing. This climb is probably done far too little due to the misleading rating and the fact that it climbs far better than it looks.

If you want another moderate crack after Mister Masters jump on this. The gear is pretty good; SR to a #2 camalot. Apr 2, 2008
