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

Description [Suggest Change]

Crux is near the top when the crack ends, getting over the bulge to the anchor.

Location [Suggest Change]

Right route, starts with a crack on the right and a flake on the left.

Protection [Suggest Change]

New: crux has a bolt so go for it! First 4/5ths of the route trad to 1". I used yellow, orange and red Metolius plus a few small-med stoppers. Hooks anchor.

Really fun, but stout and a #6 HB offset is mandatory to protect the upper crux on this (you would hit the ground if you blew it above the nut and this piece pulled). The #6 is bomber, though- a regular nut may pop out.

Good fun, definitely a worth jaunt for the solid 5.10 trad leader. Mar 15, 2014
