Access Issue: Red Rock RAIN AND WET ROCK: The sandstone is fragile and is very easily damaged when wet. Details

Description

Start in the corner just to the right of the steep direct start. This used to require trad gear/traversing to get to the bolts higher up but has since been fully bolted and follows a direct line all the way up. Extending some of the lower draws seemed useful but rope drag should be manageable without. A 70 meter rope will get you back down fine - and as always, please don't TR directly through the anchor. The upper bolts have permadraws as of Feb 2021.

Compared to other sport routes in RR this thing is a worthwhile saga. The sandy nature of the holds add to the overall experience, but hopefully they clean up with time. 

Location

Climbs the prominent arete on the right hand side of the Stratocaster Wall. Starting in a corner to the right or on Stratocaster Direct.

Protection

Bolts and bolted anchor if using the Direct start, otherwise gear is needed for the first pitch.
