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

Description

This climb sits to the right and behind the Iron Man Wall, near the left edge of the Ultraman. The left hand bolted line, this climb follows the old KP addage: "the shortest distance between two points is a straight line, but the easiest path wanders". You'll be wandering a bit on this one. Head up the obvious crack/break to where it goes horizontal, traverse left, and weave your way up the slab above. Bail right around the final vertical section, and clip those chains. A little cruxy off the ground.

Protection

5 bolts to anchors.

Enjoyable climbing. The start is a bit reachy; I placed a stopper in the initial crack to protect the move to the first bolt. Nov 17, 2016

if you start up the crack, this is probably 5.8. If you start left of the bolt, it might be 5.9. Its a nice climb, though. Jan 1, 2012
