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

Description

On the west side of the Yin & Yang cliff is an obvious splitter offwidth roof crack. It is a beastly climb that will have your attention from start to finish. Tape up. The crux is the first 20 feet fist stacking and foot camming through the roof.

Nice, dude. Someone actually did this thing! Respect. Gave it a halfhearted go in shorts once, didn't last long. Might have to get up there and give er another try! Oct 31, 2011

I'll post photos soon. Wear jeans and a long sleeve or give blood. This is a pretty burly route and keeps your attention at the top because it's quite crumbly. Definitely worth it though Oct 31, 2011
Yeah, the attempt I made was with one 5" cam and a pair of shorts, I walked away when my knee started to give up blood. Look forward to the pics-been so long since I looked at this one, I'd almost forgotten it was there! Nov 2, 2011
Done by a bunch of top ropers from WI! Seek and destroy sport wankers Andy! Nov 2, 2011

After thinking about the grade of this one for a while, I don't really think 5.11+ is accurate. I think 5.11 is good. Aug 21, 2012
