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

Description

There are several open books on the right side of Children's Crag; Stemming Corner ascends the middle corner. The line is drawn incorrectly in Handren's guide, but he directs you to start at green graffiti, which gets you to the right place.

Wander your way up into the main open-book system, and stem your way up that to a ledge with a tree (slings) or to the top and walk off.

If the line for this route is drawn wrong in Handren's guide book does anyone know what route the drawn line (#9) follows? I climbed this line thinking that the graffiti had been cleaned up but did not see twin cracks and the line felt harder than 5.6. Fun line either way and you can build an anchor off a large boulder to the right. Jan 11, 2012

I clambered up just left of the graffiti to start, then wandered fairly far, up a bit, then traversed over a steep bulge back right below the main corner. I'm not sure that was the right thing to do, but my partner ended up doing the same. We both agreed this was perhaps a touch harder than 5.6. Nice route, tho. Apr 9, 2010
