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

Description [Edit]

This is the good-looking, but short, finger crack on the west face of the crag. The climbing is straightforward up until where the crack pinches off; a couple of hard moves from there will get you to the top.

Location [Edit]

This route is located on the west face of the crag. As you're hiking to the crag, you'll see an alcove on the west face with a finger crack on its left side and an offwidth on its right side. This route tackles the finger crack. Once on top, walk off climber's right.

Protection [Edit]

Cams from purple TCU to green camalot for the finger crack; a couple of larger pieces (#3 and #4 Camalot) for the belay at the top.

The x marked death block on the left side fell off after this last hard rain a couple weeks ago. Underneath is a jug so its a little less balancy at the crux now. Feb 1, 2018
