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

Description

The base of the route is the crux. It is a slabby area with few handholds. It is a fun slabby problem. If you arms are pumped this slab could be the solution.

Location

This route is to the right of Guides Wall #2. It is the second worn crack/seam to the right of Fender Bender.

Protection

This route has a set of chains at the top.

I actually thought this was a pretty good climb. The hardest part of the route is probably just getting to the crack. Once to the crack, I think there are a few places one might be able to set protection. I thought the climb was much easier than the White Slab route (of course being on TR rather than leading can make it feel easier anyway...) Mar 24, 2011

More likely, people have been climbing on it since the recent rains, and broke off holds. Just because it's dry to the touch doesn't mean it's dry. Dec 29, 2010
