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

Description

Hardest move of the problem is figuring how to get that flat edge after matching on the sloper.
Shorter climbers have to make a slightly reachy move around the bulge. Even though its fairly low angle, there's still 15-20ft until you're at the top of the boulder- Don't forget to bring your chalkbag!

Besides that, this is an incredible problem! Joe's Valley style rock.

Location

Located right in between the two Fish Head boulders.

Start almost in the cave matched on a good ledge head-height. A lower start adds a grade or two.

To get down, climb over to the right side of the boulder where the angle lessens and scoot your way down the slab. Alternatively, there's a bunch of two bolt anchors that you could rappel from.

Protection

Just a few pads are good. You don't want to fall from high up on the slab though...

At first glance, I thought I'd be able to walk left after the mantel to hop off and avoid climbing the entire slab, nope.

Just head straight up the lowish angle slab Nov 29, 2014
