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


The flare/OW formed by the left side of a huge flake. Approximately 30m to the left of Classic Corner. Good strenuous fun.


Walk off to the right, down the Classic Corner gully.


Gear to #6 Camalot helpful. The squeeze job Contempt of Court is just to the left, providing several bolts when the going gets scary.

This was fun, seems the crux was low down, but still sustained work mostly the whole pitch. I carried a 4,5,&6, and placed the 4&6 once, but was able to place alternate gear around them so pulled them out expecting to need more big pieces further up. I finished the climb with all of my big pieces still on me.

Set up a gear anchor on the little ramp before the top, top roped, and then when finished just clipped the rope to the fixed anchors on the right and took down my gear on rappel. 5.11- at hardest

Also I think it's slightly overhung May 15, 2017

Two #6 cams protect the wide section, making it possible to avoid the bolts. Jan 11, 2012
