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

Description

The route climbs the left hand line on the tallest part of the main wall. Work the arete and the face barely right on small crimps up the vertical wall for three bolts, and then enjoy the near vertical 5.8 face to anchors.

Protection

6 bolts to chains.

Great route- had a blast on the lower technical section and good fun on the upper. Watch for loose rock up top, though- this route is still shedding a bit.

Update 10/14- This route has definitely gotten harder- the crimps down low are getting smaller and it looks to have found its grade for sure. I thought it was quite easy when I first did it, but now that the first few holds have become pretty small edges, I'd say its earned 5.10b for sure. Dec 14, 2010
Can't believe that no one's commented yet that the crux moves on the route are subject to ledging out if you blow it before hitting the second bolt. A good route and well worth doing, but PG13 at least. There's a big boulder that you're almost certain to become good friends with if you blow it on the crimpy, small-hold off balance moves getting to the 2nd bolt. I'd reccommend clipping the first bolt with a locker-if you managed to brush the draw and unclip yourself, you'll be activating your dental plan and taking an unplanned year or two off at best. A cool heads-up route. May 27, 2011

Very nice route but only one hard move and no harder than 9+ at most. As far as safety, didn't see a problem but if you're worried about hitting the boulders it would be easy to stick clip the second bolt. May 17, 2013

Tricky start not to be underestimated if this is at your limit. Also, don't be swayed to the anchors of manifest destiny, climb through up and left! Sep 15, 2014

No rap rings, just skinny chain links. Wish I had brought up my rap gear with me! Mar 5, 2017
