Fragile Sandstone: Don't Climb Wet Rock Details
Kelly Canyon is a sandstone climbing area and the rock is very fragile when wet. Be aware of recent weather and ask a local if you are unsure of conditions. Do not climb for at least a day following rainfall. Do not climb on rock that is visibly moist or seeping.
DescriptionAggressive moves requiring technique and tenacity. From dirty rock down low, climb into sloping underclings, then grovel over the bulge with desperate slaps to slopers. Mantel when possible.
As noted in the comments, the bottom of this problem has broken repeatedly but the overall difficulty remains unchanged.
