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

Description

Climbs the blank looking far right face of the main wall. Pull up through underclings and sparse feet to the first bolt, then crimp up to another undercling. Work the crimps to the right of the prominant flake to the last bolt, then traverse left into the flake. A few moves and the chains are yours.

Protection

Four bolts to chains.

Fun route- really keeps coming at you from the start. If this route is at your limit, though, it would be wise to stick clip the first bolt as the consequences of a fall would be very high. Dec 14, 2010
Will agree with the stick clip comment, but fun bouldery moves are over too quickly but worth the effort. Dec 21, 2010
Big loose block at the start that's gonna ruin someone's day down the road. I don't use a stick clip much, but I'd say that if 10d is your limit, it'd be a really smart idea. Upper flake has fun climbing but is also pretty hollow-might be a good idea to have belayer anchored out of harm's way in case anything comes down unexpectedly. That said-interesting and techy.

Good movement, but a couple of flexy flakes. Try not to haul too hard! Sep 15, 2014

Im also not a stick clip person but would advise using a stick clip even if this is not your limit. Something breaking would result in a nasty fall if you blew the first bolt. Besides the initial start this is a great climb with varied movement. Dec 21, 2014

Hell of a boulder problem for the start! The rest is much easier, with actual non-smeary feet. Nov 25, 2016

For those who don't have stick clips, there are multiple convenient sticks at the base of the climb to make a makeshift one Mar 24, 2017
