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

Description

Starts off fun and easy with interesting holes and huecos to use, gets more difficult midway through as the holds become smaller. The crux seems to be clipping the anchors at the little headwall at the top - started out easy,but many of the original holds I used when I did the first ascent have vanished. I named it as a memorial to my bro Mike who I lost this year, a hero to me.

Location

The route is the fifth one up on the right lower side as you are coming into the corridor. It is between Psychobilly and M & M. It starts at the first small tree. Please take care not to injure tree.

Protection

There are seven bolts and chain anchors.

The last bolt was sticking out about 1/2", wasn't loose or moving so it seemed solid, just placed in a slightly awkward spot. Oct 21, 2014
I agree that the clips seemed a little funky. Clipped below me a couple times because the better holds were obviously one or two moves away. And the end felt like the crux to me, but would definitely be easier for any subsequent climber if the draws are already hung. May 3, 2014

Good route, couple of funky clips, and the crimp move to gain the anchors seemed pretty hard. Good climbing though. Oct 23, 2011
