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


Start in the back of the A-frame roof on a perfect three hand letterbox slot. Work your way through the roof crack to a stimulating OW finish. A distinct departure from the usual Red Rock boulder problem... Sort of remiscient of Spin To Win, but slightly more featured.


In the boulders below Moderate Mecca. It is the less than obvious A-frame roof formed by two boulders sitting together. Unless you totally blow it, you will not fall in the yucca guarding the entrance.


Crash pad helpful.

actually looks pretty cool/ cracktastic!

v4 = 12a
v3 = 11d
v2 = 11b/c
v1 = 11a
v0 = below 11a...

this may seem shocking but its accurate (i've scored more than one beer via bets made on long hikes back to the car)

another good one to score a beer over: the true full moon rises at the same time the sun sets (gets me free beers all the time ;-) Mar 3, 2010

Thanks for showing me this one Scott. It's a fun climb that helps satisfy my need to invert. Although quite sandy, most major features are solid and it is certainly worth figuring this thing out! I'd be curious to see how others do it too... Mar 23, 2012
Fun boulder! I jumped on this a while back and gave it a good burn with no victory. I returned to it several months later to show a friend after we climbed at Mecca and I noticed a pile of poop (which I removed..some people) and several holds had broken. I returned last week to climb it and more holds were broken off. It has some very chossy parts. I got the send (proudly!) but was curious how much of this has changed since the FA, and if the absence of those holds has affected the climb much?

Edit: Talked to Scott and my beta and his beta are completely different. Well played you OW mad men! Nov 4, 2013
