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

Description

This is probably the second best route on the cliff, but very good in its own right. Its the third route on the cliff as you approach, the first on the upper wall. A bouldery start leads to awesome climbing on the upper headwall.

Location

Third route on the cliff from the left.

Protection

Five bolts

It wouldn't be a bad idea to stick clip the second bolt. There's lots of brittle rock on the 2nd half of the route, so choose your holds carefully. Great movement, nice overhang, hard crux. Jan 12, 2015

start is the crux and is not great due to fact that you could deck getting to the second bolt and the hold that get you there are a bit chossy. Thought this was the least impressive route at the crag. Mar 22, 2014

The route is contrived but fun. Stay left for the grade or cut right for the jugs bumping it down to like... 10c/d. Dec 20, 2011

This is not a good route. It's super sandy at the crux which is going to the 2nd bolt and forced. You can do it direct by doing a sandy deadpoint and risk jacking up your ankle, or surf way out right and risk a pendulum if you miss the holds. The rest of the route is pretty good, but the bottom is pretty hectic. Mar 29, 2011
