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

Description

On the right (western) side of the Aquarium Wall, there is a very clean corner that leads toward an unpromising slab. Delightful climbing ascends the corner to a stance where the crack widens to hand size. Pitch 2 follows the crack to its end, then frictions up and left to another crack, eventually belaying beneath a steeper section. Three more pitches go up the crack system to the top.

Location

Approach as for the Aquarium Wall. After climbing throught the tunnel, continue up the gully until you can cross left beneath the obvious opening corner.
