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

Description [Suggest Change]

The right-hand climb on the front of the formation. Climb a short, steep left leaning crack to a big break under a roof. Pull out the roof and make a long move to gain a very suspect hold, then surmount the bulge to a series of overhanging varnished cracks to its high shared anchor with Climb Warp.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Single rack to 2". 2 bolts. You could probably place a #3 Camalot, but I didn't.

I'm torn. The moves out of the roof are quality, and the higher rock is pretty good, but that hold at the end of the crux... I hit and caught it and more than half of the other side of it exploded off the wall. Hanging on the bolt several other pieces of it broke off in my hand; I stopped cleaning it for fear I'd remove the whole hold and render the line a non-route. Be careful on it.. and find a way to clip the second bolt early. Dec 21, 2015
