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


This route begins just above the First Creek Slabs descent gully. Start up a wide crack leading past a large bush (this is also the beginning of the Guinness Book), and bear left when possible to belay beneath a big, left-facing corner. Three pitches lead up the dihedral. The third involves strenuous liebacking to a small ledge. Above this point the corner becomes unprotectable, but an improbable escape to the right allows progress to a large ledge. From the left end of the ledge, follow the chimney system for several pitches to the summit ridge.
