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

Description

Crux is right of the ground before the first bolt on powerful, bouldery, slightly overhang pockets, continue up the face as it slabs out past increasingly run-out bolts to the top of the formation. Walk off the top to climber's left across slabs to milder terrain

Location

Just right of Arrowhead arete, around the corner.

Protection

Bolts: 4 Quick-draws (bring an extra) The Anchor on this climb is a single bolt on top of the formation. It is possible to sling a large flake to climbers left and create an anchor using the rope to link the flake and the bolt when belaying a second. Alternatively, use slings and cord to create a top-rope anchor using the flake and bolt.

Can confirm that on July 6, 2017 anchor consists of two bolts and rap rings. All bolts were solid along the way. 2007 Handren guide does list this route as lost arrow, but is updated in the 2016 guide as Don't Laugh at me Dude. Jul 6, 2017

First bolt spinner has been fixed with a magic device known as a wrench. The "pretty worn out" bolts look fine except for the fact the paint has chipped off. Possible to fit a green, purple and/or Red Camelot (they all fit) in the horizontal between the last bolt and the top/anchor bolt. This is a good route but really needs a second bolt for the anchor.

First half of the route is fun, then the rest is pretty bland.

Also of note, the first bolt and the single anchor bolt are spinners and overall the bolts are looking pretty worn out. Apr 1, 2017

That's the correct route. I bolted this with a hand drill in 2001ish. I was going to go back and add a second anchor bolt...but this became a wilderness area shortly thereafter. It's an ez walk off. If a second anchor bolt was added it would be better. Maybe one day it will be allowed. Also, one can get a "good" .5 or .75 (can't recall which was best) Camalot in the horizontal between the last bolt and the anchor.

This route was bolted solely for the purpose of allowing for the first ascent, and the first ascent information is posted here solely to document the history of the first ascent. No person should read this posting with the assumption that this route or the fixed gear left behind is safe in any way or otherwise appropriate to allow for safe subsequent ascents. Climbing is dangerous and should only be done with the appropriate training and risk management practices that include providing for the climber’s own safety. Attempting to climb this route as described above or by any other means or methods could result in injury or death. Jan 21, 2012

If I was on the right route this now has one rap ring at the top. Little run out after last bolt but easy climbing. Jan 21, 2012
