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

Description

This is a great and overlooked route that completely avoids frogland and If you are a ten leader you have to lead it sometime...

Start in the center of the f.land buttress and follow the flake all the way to the top. The pro is much better than it would appear. The book calls for a single rack to one inch but we found a place for a .75, 1, and 2 camalot sizes as well.

Really nice climb. A #2 wouldn't go unused, especially since the second bolt is looking a little worse for wear. Mar 18, 2017

This is a great variation start to Bourbon street or Frogland stopping at the same first pitch belay. The protection is good and the 3 bolts are in perfect places. My new preferred start to either route. Apr 21, 2014
The upper bolts are back. Oct 1, 2012
Those bastards. Who dareth stealeth the retrobolts that allow such convenient skipping of the tree?!?!

Tree is solid for rapping. Bolts have appeared and disappeared on this route again and again. No reason to stress about it. It's the Circle of Life... Aug 5, 2012
