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

Description

A nice pitch goes up the pleasantly varnished and featured chimney to a belay position in a small alcove. The second pitch continues up the steep crack on somewhat softer and less pleasant rock. Pitch three frictions up to a left-slanting ramp. The route finishes on easier slabs above.

Location

The route starts in the obvious chimney about twenty feet left (west) of Ernest Stemmingway.

The first pitch was nice. You never found anyone willing to take the blame for that cordolette we found? Jun 30, 2008

Nobody yet. At this point, my best speculation would point toward a New Yorker with a strong survival instinct Jun 30, 2008

We found this harder, more thought provoking, and more exposed than its neighbor, Ernest Stemmingway. (Both were thoroughly enjoyable.) Jan 6, 2015
