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

Description

This is a surprisingly nice little corner climb that protects well and gets afternoon shade. It would be a good choice for a budding 5.9 trad leader as the crux comes higher up and you'll have several pieces of gear below you.

Descent:
One single-rope rappel from slings on the bushes above and right

Location

This climb lies just right of Arch Rival as listed in the Handren Guide.

Protection

A double rack of cams from green alien to .75 camalot and singles of #1
& #2 camalot

Some of the face holds you have to use are creaky and some of the pro is hollow sounding. Maybe not the best route for a budding 5.9 leader, but will clean up to be a good route. Nov 13, 2010
