Access Issue: Red Rock RAIN AND WET ROCK: The sandstone is fragile and is very easily damaged when wet. Details


This is a nice route that is generally easy climbing and short cruxes. It's only drawback is crispy holds in a few places. It can be most easily identified by a noticeable dark cresting-wave-like roof on the 3rd pitch. The first 4 pitches are long, clean, and fun. Above the route weaves through a series of aretes and buttresses.

Pitch 1: Climb up the face finding the path of least resistance. 195ft

Pitch 2: Continue up and left up to a roof in a left facing corner. Pull the roof and belay.

Pitch 3: Continue up the crack below the wave-like roof. Traverse right on brown varnished rock to a crack at the right side of the roof. Continue up through the roof and belay in the crack above.

Pitch 4-7: Continue up the crack and face to a tree. From the tree move up and left around a buttress to a crack. Continue up this crack to the top in about 2 more pitches.


This route lies just to the left of the Hotflash gully on a buttress which is bordered on the left by a bushy gully.

Descent: Use the usual First Creek Slabs descent.


Standard rack to 4"

There are no bolts on this route. Lets keep it that way.
