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

Description

A brutal little boulder problem on the far right of the back-side of the Plumbers Crack Boulder.

Sit start with an incut left hand side-pull and a low, flat, right hand crimp. Hard first move to a gnarly potato chip edge out right, then work your way through small edges to the lip.

Very good rock quality. Would be 4 stars without a giant hole under you and if it wasn't squeezed in next to the Mole.

Location

Just to the right of 'The Mole' V5/6 on the Plumbers Crack Boulder.

Protection

3-4 Pads. You'll need to fill in a body sized hole that's just beneath the climb with pads.

As par usual, not sure on the grade. Prob v10 I guess, but it felt a lot harder than Plumbers Crack Traverse or Slice N Dice, whatever.... try it!! Jan 23, 2013
