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

Description

Slot Club is an adventurous flaring offwidth/corner on nice smooth stone. The climbing requires a good amount of creative thinking and a little trickery to boot. The general difficulties come from committing to the crack when the face holds completely disappear and the crux is negotiating a bulge.

Location

The right most of the three cracks on Slot Club Wall

Protection

.5 to 6 BD, doubles 4-6, an additional 3.5 or 4 would be great to secure the belayer.

Anchor is fixed gear and cord. This routes bakes in the sun, bring extra cord. I would also not rap this with a 60m as it comes up sketchily short.

As hilarious as the rack sounds, the extra 4, 5, and 6 have value on this one, as well as the smaller cams. I had 2-#4's which seemed like the minimum, and did a lot of logistics to keep bringing the 5 and 6 along. Worthy climb. (Also the nut and cord anchor is in great shape.) Dec 23, 2017
