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]

Pitch 1: Start in the middle of the slab on a nice flat perch. Climb the easy slab to some thin and slabby moves above a bolt (crux), or bail into the seam left. Clip one (or two) bolts on Behavior Issues, then continue up and left on a giant hollow varnish plate. Up and over this to an anchor. 5.10a.
Pitch 2: Climb straight up through the mellow slab to a sloping ledge, traverse right, and finish on the wide crack of the second pitch of Behavior Issues. 5.8.

Location [Suggest Change]

Rappel with one 60m rope to the anchor of Behavior Issues, and then once more to the ground.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Bolts to chains.

Yeah, you lie about the rating! Either I missed something really obvious, or a hold broke, cause that ain't 9+/10a. Dec 7, 2012

bcf, I'll agree; it's a pretty spicy slab at 10a. That being said, it's about a million times easier and not nearly as scary as the Sumo Greatness slab at children's crag, put up in 1982 by Paul and Sal. 5.9+ they say. Likely an on-purpose sandbag to mess with John Long, who put up a 10b slab right next to it the year before. The 9+ is significantly harder than that one too, and much scarier. Jan 10, 2014
