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

Description

Start on the ledge at the far right end of the slab. Step left to the first bolt, and follow the line up and slightly left until it links into Behavior Issues.

Protection

Bolts to chains.

For a simple but safe start, just head up Trust Me, I Lie. After the 2nd bolt, veer up and right to the 1st bolt of Broad Border in about 20 feet. This traverse is Class 4. This route zigzags a lot so extendable runners are advised to reduce rope drag. I haven't done the route in a few years and find that it's crept up to 5.8 after cleaning up. Mar 30, 2016

a very nice climb that climbs decent rock through a path that barely avoids bad rock. get off route a little and you'll be pulling off holds for sure. well protected, stay just left of the bolts most of the way and you'll be fine.

it's probably best to belay from the ground and pass the rope up via stick clip or toss it down after climbing up to the ledge (it's a long walk up to the ledge). Oct 6, 2013

We did Broad Border and then linked it with the upper pitch of Behavior Issues. Routes are new and it feels like every hold is going to come off. This will get a little harder as it loses some of it's marginal holds. Overall well protected. Had the belayer tied off to the bolt 15' to right with the end of the rope to keep them from getting pulled off in the event of a fall. May 31, 2012
