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


Three bolts of low 5.10 jugs leads to two bolts of thin, technical crimping on a slightly overhung face. Pull into the lie down rest, then tackle the relaxing headwall to the anchors. An excellent warmup for the insanity that lies deeper in the corridor.


The first route on the steep left side of the corridor.


Bolts to chains.

I was on this recently and believe that in comparison to its' neighbor to the right, this route is significantly easier. I give Helltown 11c/d and Pockets of Dirt 11a. Oct 23, 2011

The bolt directly above the lay down rest is In rock that looks to be cracked. I have notified someone but want to give everyone else a heads up for safety. Feb 8, 2013

Did this last spring and there appears to be a bolt (or two) missing at the top. Only clipped three and couldn't even find any more on rappel. Maybe we just missed something...Weird. Made for a large run-out at the top.. The moves were quite easy for 11d though Mar 3, 2013

On 3/6/13, the ASCA replaced the second to last pro bolt on this route with a 1/2" x 2.75" SS 5-piece bolt. Mar 6, 2013

As everyone has already said, this route felt significantly easier than its neighbor to the right. That said, I thought this route was more interesting and more fun. Definitely a route worth doing. Dave, I didn't notice anything particular hard after the crux, so I'm not sure this route got much harder. Mar 22, 2014
1/5/2017 ....The Southen Neveda Climbers Coalition with support from ASCA preformed some route maintenance on Pockets of Dirt. The second to last protection bolt was replaced with a Fixe SS 3/8 x 6 1/2 Glue-In Bolt. Jan 5, 2017
