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

Description

Dying Breed follows the pretty seams and cracks through the nice varnish. Falling before your first piece would not be too fun, especially with out a pad. Once through the initial sequence and you have your first piece this climb is not run out, just spicy!

Start on two chalked up small plates, take a deep breath and pull bouldery moves up and left to a stance to get your first piece. Continue up the steep wall with pretty good gear, there will be a section or 2 that feels a little bold. Get a good rest and gear before punching through the great finish on this classic test piece.

It is easy to rap and check out placements before tying in... I'm glad I did.

Location

second route from the left. between the 11c on the arete and the bolted 12c

Protection

Mostly small. Bring the c3s, small masters (to a yellow), rps and wires. it has 2 bolts for the anchor. The pro is good but you'll have to work for it and want an attentive belayer
