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

Description

Th is route ascends the far right side of the wall. Straightforward 5.6 slab climbing brings you to a break under a roof, where tricky technical moves on round crimpers pull you up onto the upper section of the wall. Easier if you're tall. If it were longer and more sustained, it'd be sweet.

Protection

Bolts to chains.

Well protected and fun even if it is a one move climb. Jan 7, 2015

I climbed (but didn't send) it on TR, so instead of following the easy bolted start, I took an alternative start straight down from the anchors--a fun bouldery start. Jan 5, 2013

The route is well worth doing. I managed to underestimate the roof moves and fell on my first attempt. Good lead for the aspiring 11a sport leader as most of the route is 5.6-5.8. Jan 14, 2010

It's got quality moves through the crux, and the bottom 30 feet is a great beginner climb. My sweetness comment means just that: it would be a better climb if it were a little longer and had a more sustained finish.

And thanks for the name props =). I laughed to myself for the hour after it occurred to me. Dec 12, 2008

Why bolt it if it's NOT "sweet"? Nov 22, 2008
