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


Perhaps the finest sport climb in Red Rock. Two bolts of 5.9 jugginess lead to the first of many powerful boulder problems. Enjoy the variety (and the mandetory all points off dyno) and grimace through the crimpers on this beautiful classic!


Deepest route on the left side of the corridor, next to Sunsplash (5.13b).


Chain draws to chains.

This route is height dependent. A handful of trivial moves turn straightforward but hard for someone below average height, soon turning desperate for those under 5.6. Surely it still goes, but prepare to watch taller climbers hike through your cruxes while complaining about easy moves such as those through the finger locks. Feb 16, 2017

It appears the undercling just before the dyno has been broken off. Doesn't seem any harder, just different. I always thought it felt pretty solid...makes me wonder if someone climbed it before it was dry :/ Feb 24, 2015
World fucking class. Stout rig Mar 29, 2014

One of my favorite routes ever, although the crux is really awkward and hurts a little bit. Worth it though. Jan 28, 2014
It gets almost no sun. Maybe 30 minutes when the sun is directly above it. Dec 25, 2013

When does this beast get sun? Dec 25, 2013
definitely world class, one of the hardest moves is right at the beginning with a one finger crack that hurts like hell! great place to take pics Nov 29, 2012
"Working" sounds like a lot of work to me. Feb 15, 2012

A classic 13! A fun start with very cool rock features. For me there were 2 cruxes. One near the beginning with a pinky jam (I believe around the 4th bolt) and the last was the dyno (make sure to catch the edge). Nov 18, 2010

I agree with ya Ben. I worked this thing one day and hung like 3 times my first go. This season I will work the crap out of it. WORLDCLASS!!!!! Oct 22, 2010
I agree with the above, this climb is worldclass. If you ever work a 13b, let it be this one. Mar 24, 2009
