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


Pitch 1 - Start in a crack and move up about 30'. Step right and continue up to a huge belay ledge. This pitch has awkward climbing. The lower portion is kinda mossy so expect to get dirty! 80'

Pitch 2 - Start in the corner. Pull around the corner and through a roof. This is the crux of the climb. Once through the roof continue up on jugs to webbing. The pro is not obvious through the roof though it's definitely there. 100'

Pitch 3 - Climb the face/cracks on great pro. Once the rock starts to get iffy, make a traverse left on good holds to the base of a corner and belay. 80'

Pitch 4 - Climb up the corner to a face. Make some calculated moves on thin pro. Work up and left on easy terrain. This pitch might deserve a PG rating. 100'


This route is located on the right side of the buttress. From the approach hill, work up and right on 3rd class slab following cairns. Look for an obvious switch back. Take this switch back to a brushy ledge and work right to a ramp. The route is at the top. Rappel the route with 2 ropes.


Rack to 4" doubled through 1. Rappel with 2 ropes.
