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

Description

Climb to the left side of the roof, then up and right on the varnished face. Adequate protection is available. The easiest descent is to step left to the rap station on top of Coronary Bypass. Alternatively climb Pincushion for two more good pitches.

Location

Begin to the right of the mini-buttress below the hanging block.

Protection

small cams

Excellent pitch. If you follow the cracks on the left side of the lower slab, which seems like the natural line, the difficulty seems more like 5.5-5.6. Apr 11, 2014

I chose to stay in the center at the bottom adequate protection, Fun with an easy improbable traverse above overhang. Apr 17, 2015

New belay anchor at top. 70m just makes it, maybe with a 4' downclimb for a light weight climber. Apr 19, 2017

I should have paid more attention to the description, I got suckered into the left crack above the roof. I'll have to do the actual route next time and continue up Pincushion. Apr 10, 2018
