Access Issue: Red Rock RAIN AND WET ROCK: The sandstone is fragile and is very easily damaged when wet. Details

Description

Coolest route on the upper tier. Start in the chimney and climb through a crimpy bulge to easier climbing above. At the crux, clip the bottom link of the chain to protect from a ledge fall.

Belayer may want a helmet, as small pebbles and sand tend to get kicked off by the climber.

Location

Belay position is completely shaded and out of sight at the bottom of a comfy 2.5' wide 6' deep crack easily accessible by walking to the end of the narrow gully past a tree and around a huge wedged boulder.

Protection

9 bolts lead up to chains with draw friendly rap rings.

This thing is goofy and weird, and VERY fragile. Be very mindful, and the belayer really should wear a helmet. Dec 30, 2011

Pretty fun route. Seemed easy for the grade. John, I think this has cleaned up well since 2011. Nothing felt really fragile at all. Kind of curious to hear if anyone knows the point of the chain on the 5th bolt (I think). Seems pretty strange. Dec 30, 2013

I've been on it since and it has cleaned up. The chain is there to prevent the draw from crossloading over an edge and to make the crux bolt easier to clip. The bolt isnt lower due to placement options, if i recall correctly. Definitely not an ideal solution, but it works well enough. Dec 30, 2013

Stem/chimney start is fantastically fun and quite safe. Once you get out of the chimney it gets vertical and sustained, up until it slabs out to the anchors (which are invisible until you're almost upon them). Nothing seemed fragile. Best route at The Hamlet. Dec 19, 2015
