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


P1 Face climb to the right finger crack system that leads over a bulge (crux, nuts & small cams) into the main corner/crack system. Climb this past a sandy split in the crack. When the split rejoins, move out left on featured holds in the black, varnished face; trend up and left to an alcove in white rock, possible belay further left beneath the oak tree growing straight out of the cliff under a triangular roof. P2 From the belay, angle back right to regain the central crack system which is followed to the summit.
