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

Description

This route starts directly under the obvious water streak at the far right side of the wall. The water polished rock looks and feels glass smooth in places. There are options for getting up the lower portion on not much more than little nubbins for holds. This steeper bottom section, the crux, gets much milder from about the mid point to the anchor.

Location

This is the first route at the far right side of the wall, directly under the water streak. The route goes straight up the streak and then drifts off to the right to the anchor. If you find yourself in or around the Tuna and Chips Wall, you have gone too far.

Protection

Six bolts lead to a two chain anchor with quick links.

I found this to be very difficult for a 5.9. If you have doubts about competently leading this grade, this route is not the one. Apr 8, 2016
I agree with the previous comment. A friend and I had humbling experience on this route. It was challenging till the third bolt but somehow feet stick on those tiny tiny holds. Strongly recommend all routes on The Slab! Mar 2, 2017

From the ground, starting just left of the first bolt and then traversing right provides a very solid stance to clip and keeps the grade 5.9. Well bolted down low and a safe lead. Dec 20, 2017
