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

Location

The last rib on the right side of the First Creek Slabs. If you hit the Echove you've gone too far.

Protection

standard rack

Description

This is a long moderate route with relatively good rock that protects well.

P1 - start up a dark varnished right facing corner with huge holds and good protection (150')

P2 - step up and onto lighter colored rock with little "nubbins" that will flake off with weigh. work your way up and left to the face of the rib (150')

P3 - follow a nice crack to the base of the wave (175')

P4 - follow the crack up and thru the brown wave and follow a good crack another 125' to a ledge with an ancient piton (175')

P5 - follow the face for an easy pitch, belay on top of the rib (175')

P6 - step down and follow a vegetated crack for about 100' and then head up left at a large tree, belay 30' to the left of the tree (130')

P7 & P8 - follow cracks up the center of the face trending left for two pitches to a ledge were you can access the stand first creek rappel (300')
