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

Description

Another long, technical climb that is unlike the routes around the corner. This one is slightly easier than Mr Choad's because there are a couple of good rests before and after the crux.

Location

Just right of Mr Choad's

Protection

10 bolts, shares anchors with Mr Choad's

This page says 10 blots but I remember using 12 draws before getting to the anchor . Bring 12 draws if you don't want to skip bolts. Feb 5, 2016

I agree, I liked this almost more than Mr. Choads — though slightly easier. The weird chimney / stemming moves at the bottom were fun and provided the climb with varied techniques and sections. Apr 7, 2015

awkward start but then gets into some fun face climbing. Good change up from the steep stuff around the corner. Oct 16, 2013

I actually liked this one better than Choad's in some ways- less pumpy, with a very exciting crux. Long and alot of fun.

Watch the anchors- if someone thinks of it, take some chains or contact me and I'll get you some mussy hooks- the glue-ins are starting to show quite a bit of wear. May 1, 2010
