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


Start 20 feet right of Disarmament, under a squeeze chimney. Climb the chimney with many face holds around it. At the third bolt, where the line splits, take the left bolt line (going straight up) and fight your way up and over a bulge with poor feet. Climb the slab above, and when the wall steepens, use opposing flakes and specific feet to gain an angling flake of jugs. Up in the varnish, follow the line up and slightly left, finally arriving at the high anchor. A long technical route.


13 bolts to anchors.

Okay, so I finally got around to going back up to suss the damage... SALT seems completely intact to me, still sitting at a comfortable 10+. Tons of chalk on it too; someone (or many someones) have given it a good many gos it seems. Feels more solid than the first ascent too.. cleaning up well! May 10, 2014

This route has gotten harder since the FA- looks like a pretty crucial hold snapped off. I had to pull through down low, and eventually bailed higher up (free biner for someone!). Not sure of the grade now- probably 5.11 something. Oct 11, 2013

Cool positioning with some good moves... but lots of very breakable holds, most of which are crucial to the route. Might get better with time, but there is still a lot of crunch left Oct 9, 2013
