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

Description [Suggest Change]

West Edge Lane takes the sharp arĂȘte directly below Desert Gold. It begins up Clipper (the dihedral to the right) and then moves left and flirts with the arĂȘte past 5 bolts to a chain anchor on a small ledge just below the first belay of Desert Gold.

The crux is at the very top, but several difficult sections, often using fragile, small flakes, make this a challenging route. This route will become much more difficult/impossible if these holds break, so wear your kid gloves.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Five bolts and an anchor.
