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

Description

Climb the right approach pitch (5.5) to an anchor below the large corner, then step right and follow the right-hand line of bolts up an arete and then through an alley of ribbed huecos and horizontal pinches to a sit-down rest atop a small pillar. Follow the line up and around a roof to the left where a thin section past a short rightward traverse proves to be the crux. A cool climb.

Location

Rappel with one 60m rope.

Protection

Bolts to chains.

I readily agree with Mostafa. I took a 30-foot whipper below the penultimate bolt after a crimper hold on the thin face crumbled in my fingers. The route is well bolted, though, and my fall was quite safe, since the thin face is over empty, overhung space. So otherwise, an interesting climb. It should get better once the loose stuff all breaks off. Nov 5, 2013

This route along with others at this new crag still have loose rock. A really large brick sized chunk came off today right at us. I'm bringing my helmet next time and would advise climbers and belayers to wear their helmets. Oct 14, 2013
