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

Description

This route is the thin seam to the right and up from Fixx cliff. We happened upon this climb after doing a 5.8 on Dog wall. When we came toward the climb, about 20 Gambel's Quail flew off. The seam offers a little marginal protection down low. The real crux of this climb is trusting the rock. On the FA, we probably broke 10 holds- I took a ground fall after breaking 3 holds 5 feet up. There is about 20 feet of near vertical 5.7 climbing followed by 60 feet of 4th class/ 5.0 climbing.

Location

Above Dog wall, right of Fixx cliff. This is the thin seam 15' left of a large crack

Protection

Small cams and nuts to 1/2 inch. Optional #2 BD cam for belay
