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

Description

Starts between A Day in the Life and Yaak Crack, next to a small tree. A bouldery start leads to a very thin and very sustained overhung face. The holds get bigger and the wall steeper as you go. 5.12a if you start off the shelf behind.

Protection

Bolts to Chain Anchors.

On 1/27/11, the ASCA replaced the first pro bolt on this route with a 1/2 x 2.75" SS 5-piece.

On 1/29/11, the ASCA replaced the second to last pro bolt on this route with a 1/2 x 3.75" 5-piece bolt. The anchors were also replaced with 1/2 x 5" SS 5-piece bolts and equipped with mussy hooks. Jan 27, 2011

fantastic route, definitely harder than the Prophet and Tour De Pump. stays with you the whole way, but if you can make it to the one big jug on the route and get some back, you can probably clip the chains.

This route lost a key hold in recent years- ticking up the difficulty of the route off the ledge to .12b. Add the tough start of equal difficulty, and this route stays with you the whole way. I'd say this is .12b/c if you're tall, if you're short, it's solid .12c as you cannot avoid the heinous crimps passing the second bolt. Nov 18, 2013
