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


Starts 10 feet right of Expert Textpert. Climb the prominant, blocky flake up the vertical wall.
Variation (5.11a): Bail right at the third bolt and finish on Pornographic Priestess.


Bolts to chains.


The first bolt is now an ASCA glue in. Jul 5, 2017
Don't bother clipping the first bolt on this one til I get out to fix it-pulled out on someone, they replaced and tightened it back, but didn't return the sleeve to the bolt. That means it's bunk, for now. Jul 29, 2011

The variation is definetly height dependant. If you're short (like me) or have short arms (like me), the reach out to the flake is a bear, and moving your feet without barndooring proves to be the crux. Dec 8, 2009

Nice route...definitely not a boulder problem. The link up of the first 3 bolts of this to the last bolt and anchor of the route on the right seemed to be more around 10b/c, IMHO. Oct 18, 2009
