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


Climb the obvious corner and crack system above, eventually reaching the large ledge midway up the western wall. Continue across the ledge and up a crack to a belay position by a short chimney. Climb up the crack and traverse left at a large prominent varnish patch, then straight up to the summit.

Walk west to the rappel tree.


Scramble up the approach slabs to the brushy ledge at the base of the western wall. The route starts in the corner system on the left.


We had a big cam (#6 Friend) and used it; two ropes for rappel
