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


Fun, bolted route. Start is tougher than the rest.


Leftmost bolted route on the crag, starts near the chimney.

It is possible to deck on this route (by hitting the rock to the left) from the 4th bolt (or so...I forget which one). Be sure to scope it out before just hoping on this route...if you are not solid at 10A.

That said, this is a great route on some of the best quality rock in RR. Sep 15, 2009

didnt notice any one move as the crux, nor did i notice any 5.9 climbing. that said, the route is fairly continuous, which means you'll be doing real climbing above your be prepared. Apr 25, 2010

This is a really high-quality route, with good climbing the entire length of it. Jan 1, 2017
