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


Full force for the rating, this is a great route to do while at the crag. Varied in style, this line offers a lot more than steep jug pulling. Demanding precision and a good amount of thought Claimjumpers Special will keep you thinking.

A dead vertical beginning leads to some difficult and hard to read terrain. A tight break, hidden edges, and few nice side-pulls keep the climbing entertaining. Pull through its low-lying committing crux to a quick rest and enjoy a more technical, more mellow dash to the chains.


Claimjumpers Special is the far-most left route at the wall. It starts steep and rounds out on a more featured face.


Five bolts to a two-bolt anchor.

i thought this was pretty touch for 10c. The moves off the ground are slopey and the difficulty doesn't ease till the third bolt. Probably not 11a but close. Mar 28, 2010

I disagree, felt pretty easy for 10d or even 10c. The crux for me was clipping the anchors because they felt far from the good holds up top. Anchors are to far right from where the route ends. Jan 22, 2011

I agree with the guy above me. I climbed past the anchors on accident following the line that seemed to make sense. had to down climb to them...... Apr 1, 2012

Climbed it a bunch at this point, and the crux ALWAYS wakes me up. For some reason I remember it being cruiser and then suddenly I'm having to pay attention and pull hard for a move or two. It's .10c compared to Scorpions. Jan 5, 2013

Great route to get started with. If you climb this first and have no interest in leading hard stuff you can easily traverse a few feet and set up top ropes. Dec 22, 2015
