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

Description

This is a pretty cool route with an old school feel. Not a casual sport route for the 5.9 leader. The bolts have some space between them and the heady move to gain the scoop at the top is protected by some cams in a small flaring crack. The cams are probably solid pieces but I'd put 2 in there to be sure. You can descend by walking off to the right. Since this is in plain view of the parking lot, expect a crowd of spectators to gather!

Location

This is the right most line that you will find as you enter the Front Corridor.

Protection

3 bolts, Red/Yellow Alien sized cam for the heady top out. 2 bolt anchor(not shuts) at the top as of 4/09.

Awesome slab climbing. All the hard moves are close to a runner. Sep 13, 2015

have this marked off in my guide book, i think it was a runout slab? i think it was the only route i did in this area and remember it being not far from the parking area down a sandy gulley to a split in the trail. bolts and some trad gear. Jul 25, 2012
This route can easily be top-roped with a 60M rope. It's on slippery, slabby white sandstone with long spaces between bolts. Nov 15, 2009

Word... it's easier if you let the route wander a bit... any idea what the line is to the right? It's got anchors but no bolts... Feels like a 10 Apr 22, 2009
