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


Climb the slab to the flake, then cork screws back to face climbing on the right. I put a PG13 rating of this b/c any fall would send you into the off-width for a very awkward landing.


The obvious curving crack seen from the parking lot

I followed this climb on 12/16/2017. I found this to be a really fun route. My partner and I are new to the trad game and we both felt comfortable on this route. The protection opportunities are good and the climbing is moderate and fun. Also, the bolted anchor and belay ledge at the top allow for a quick and comfortable belay setup. Super fun route!

Easy slab friction moves up to a well protectable crack system. A fall up to this point would be more of a "slide". Nice Warm up. Takes pro to 4 inches. Mar 17, 2017

This is a very fun route, but a touch run-out (~15' off the deck) to the first gear placement. After that, it protects well and has some fun moves. Mar 16, 2017
Just a note this route is easily rapped with a single 60m.

Josh, what time did you climb? We were on the climb sometime between 10am and noon and I did not see anything. Dec 29, 2016

LOST (12/29/2016): Sling and Nut Tool. I forgot a sling (which I could care less about) and a nut tool (which has a lot of value for me). Either at Fender Bender or Man's Best Friend. I will reward you very well if you return them to me. Thanks! Dec 29, 2016

This is a fun route that protects well. The route offers several options for climbing styles -- stemming, face climbing, and even a lieback at the top. Best route on this wall, in my opinion. Mar 24, 2011

On 11/22/10, the anchors were replaced on this route with ASCA 1/2x3.75 w/ rings. The established anchor was set up in such a way that it was loosening the bolts and wearing out their placements. Nov 22, 2010
