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

Description

On the right side of the Oakey Buttress, the formation is cleaved at the top by a gully, that becomes a chimney, that becomes a water-worn groove, and finally peters out half way down the cliff. Climb the dirty, loose, and not-very-pleasant cracks beneath the groove, then follow the chimney to the top.
