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

Description

This appealing corner, the most conspicuous on the north face, is a little brushy and occasionally loose, but it's still a worthy route. The left facing, right leaning feature is easy to identify, and the crux might be turning the roof about half way up. Or, it might be the complex first pitch. Some more traffic would improve some lichenous sections.

Location

It sits right of Chuckwalla on the remote northeast face of Global Peak. It is the obvious left facing corner that leans right. Follow the directions for the approach from Black Velvet parking as described in the Handren guide, or here on MP.

Protection

A standard rack with cams to 3" will work.

Did the route to avoid traffic on Chucawalla 21, it was an adventure not the best route around by a long shot. Crux is first pitch, after that just a red rock seldom traveled route. Up high turned a bulge (on lichen ramp as discribed in handren guide) with little pro and felt sporty (5.7 the way I did it 15-20 feet out from pro) and prob get messed up if the flakes blew. Top out rap down and life is good. Mar 16, 2014
