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

There is a bouldery move on chocolate patina right off the bat that yields to easier climbing. Depending on height/reach, this route might seem harder or easier than the reported grade.

Location

The left hand route on the wall.

This is the first 5.12 that I have ever lead outside, the first move is quite tough and has a big reach, after that more moderate 5.10-5.11 climbing leads to the chains. I found this really fun and sticking the first bouldering problem feels great! Apr 1, 2017
The start is rather horrendous with an immediate crux which is easier the longer your wingspan. After a dozen attempts to stick the sequence off of the ground, the rest was a breeze. Feb 14, 2017

Fun little route! Technical crimping gets in your face right from the start. Bring your footwork for this one. Feb 3, 2014
