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

Description

Start at an overhanging section using some nice face holds and hand jams. Climb the crack straight up to the large flat area with a slung tree to the right. Continue to the left to a large ledge (really just a scramble), or rap from the tree (this significantly shortens the route). The ledgy area is also the top of Revoked.

If you continue the climb from the ledge, scramble back to the slung tree and rap.

Keep in mind, the beginning moves are harder than 5.5.

Location

Left-side crack of the pillar that is to the right of Crooked Crack.

Protection

Medium gear for the route and large gear for anchor

I think it may have lost some face holds on the start, I don't see how a 5.5 leader would pull this. I just jammed the crack (great hands), but I lead overhanging hands cracks. Really boring climbing above. Rope stretch can be bad for your second with such a low roof. Mar 27, 2017

100% agree that beginning moves are not 5.5. It's in the 6-7 range, height dependent. Nov 1, 2016

Not really that great of a route. Protects well. Can build a gear anchor to belay partner up at rappel bush. Jan 30, 2010
