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

Description

This route is a pleasant top-rope pitch. To lead it would require long run-outs (or a Hundred-Foot Stick Clip!).

Climb the headwall beneath the slab, then wander up the lower-angled rock above. Near the top, you will pass an old protection bolt; a short distance above there is a two-bolt belay/rappel station.

Location

Just to the right of the alcove with Stirling Moss is a buttress with a slab on its left side. Scramble up to the base of the steep, varnished headwall beneath the slab.

Replaced the old webbing on the top anchor. Slightly diagonal one-rope rappel (climber's left) reaches a pedestal and easy downclimbing. Apr 11, 2014
