Access Issue: Fragile Sandstone: Don't Climb Wet Rock Details
Kelly Canyon is a sandstone climbing area and the rock is very fragile when wet. Be aware of recent weather and ask a local if you are unsure of conditions. Do not climb for at least a day following rainfall. Do not climb on rock that is visibly moist or seeping.
Start on Hot Karl, and take a hard left out of the overhang via the pinch/crimp-pocket hold (<<--you'll likely match this hold, or bury your right hand in the crimp-pocket). From here make a big leftward move to a decent, but sloping, left-handed gaston, and toe down to fish your right hand out over the lip to more slopers. Then, get set up and figure out how to heave your body upwards toward the top-out jug. The crimp seam is surprisingly bad and the finishing jug feels like it's miles away. If you feel like you're wrestling a grizzly bear you're on the right path. A really fun problem that's on par with the classic hard moderates in the canyon.
