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

Description

Climb the big corner, and where the wall steepens, continue up the awesome zig-zagging finger crack until it makes sense to pull around the overhang left. Ten more feet up a 5.6 slab to the anchor.

Protection

Double rack to 7".

Sustained; spicy, but safe; has an amazing flow and works the whole body.
I had 2x#4, #5 and #6 and definitely appreciated having each one of these. In fact, had to back-clean #5 from lower section to use after #6. But I'm mediocre at ow.
You can dog the top with decent RPs, so don't be intimidated to jump on it. Placing them on lead, however, is way pumpy and fall looks fine, so just figure out the beta and gopher it to the anchor. Apr 19, 2017

Great climb. Leave the #6's at home and beware of birds! Oct 11, 2013
