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

Description

Nice line, but not as popular as many of the routes at this wall. Unlike many of the routes here, this route is not juggy - it is sort of slightly overhanging with some crimps and big moves.

So on the whole, it appears most folks prefer "Sunny and Steep" and some of the other routes to the right - but this is a worthwhile line and worth a spin. Good movement with high points for continuity.

Location

This is one route right of Claim Jumpers Special, overall the second one in from the left side of the wall.

Really fun and sustained crimping through the first four bolts. There are no stopper moves, and for how thin it is, it is not sharp. Nov 28, 2016

The knifeblade crimpers actually cut me open on this route. I wasn't sold on it, but my partner thought it was one of the best routes we had done that day. Dec 22, 2015
