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

Description

This route starts in a clean corner crack and continues upwards though varied terrain. It features good cracks in a variety of sizes, a few edges, and a couple rest stances before encountering a traversing wide crack that is probably the crux. Pull the bulge and continue up the wide crack to the top of the big shared belay ledge.

To get down rappel straight down Xyphoid fever with a 60m rope.

Location

Right of Xyphoid Fever scrabble up to a good stance near/under a bush by a corner crack.

Protection

Single rack to 3", one 5"

Rock quality gets worse the higher you get on this one. Sugar cookie sandstone for hands and feet at the crux, both inside and outside the crack. Too bad, as the first 60 feet or so are very pleasant. Jan 4, 2014
