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

Description

Start just left of Bottoms Up below a patch of varnish. Climb slabby wall past 4 bolts. Easy up high. Crux is getting to the first bolt. The move is committing and awkward. I got a "good" RP in a seam by the large hole/pocket. Good climbing past the bolts.

Location

Start just left of Bottoms Up. Descent is the same as the other routes on this wall

Protection

Bolts. Optional sz(0/1)RP to protect move getting to the first bolt.

Just wanted to make it clear that the entire lower section is just pretty spaced-out bolts. No real chances for supplemental pro. A small cam or two (I used a single yellow #2 TCU) in some horizontal cracks up high will protect you on the extremely easy topout in case an edge blows under hand or foot. Nov 24, 2017

i used a #4 TCU in a shallow parallel that was probably too low to help. i saw the RP placement but it's pretty damn small and less than a foot above the TCU. the climbing is excellent. Nov 5, 2016

Without an RP, I got in a good small BD stopper, though the rock wasn't. Blowing the committing crux likely means decking. It's equitable to a boulder problem with an uneven hard landing. Spot, belay, or both? Feb 2, 2016

Good but not great route. The bolts are few but well placed so the climbing doesn't feel bold. Definitely bring a few small cams for the 5.easy top section or be prepared for a massive runout on friable rock. Oct 14, 2013
