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


Pull through the roof and up a right leaning blunt arete to a step right around a bulge. Crank straight up onto the very steep face that follows and leads to the anchor.


Start on the east side of the north face underneath a roof.

I got to meet John Heiman last week and watch him climb a 12c variation to this which finished on the Nirvana anchors. It looks outstanding. Oct 24, 2017
Message to the party of 2 climbing nirvana to the right. I cleaned your draws from this route and have 1 more of your purple/silver draws. If I can get this back to you please message me, and I will return it.
Thank you. Dec 5, 2016

This route has 9 bolts, but its ideal to either skip, stick clip, or back clean the first bolt to keep the drag down.


upon further reflection I think that this is 5.12a if you avoid the obvious boulder problem on the face above the start by going left (which most do), but it's every inch of its 4 stars and absolutely worth the slog up the hill! Oct 17, 2013
