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]

Climbs the straight, slightly right-angling handcrack on the left side of the rock. It's a pretty straightforward climb, with plenty of gear in the crack and featured rock on the face. This route appears in Handren's 2007 Guidebook.

Location [Edit]

About 150' left of The Great Red Book proper.

Protection [Edit]

Singles to 3" should do it. The anchors are off to the right on a ramp, so make sure to extend your last piece. There are quicklinks, not rap rings, so make sure to rappel instead of lowering if you don't want to pig-tail your rope.

An OK route, did this while waiting to start Red Book with some friends. A couple of holds broke off in my hands towards the top, and no it wasn't raining, so make your belayer wear a helmet- like you already should be doing ;) Mar 3, 2013

This is an ideal route for a beginner trad lead: easy, very straight forward and pretty easy to sew up, The rock quality is fine, most of the crumbly stuff has already been worn off. Feb 7, 2018
