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

Description

P1: Climb the right facing corner using perfect jams and side pulls until a committing step gains you the upper crack. Belay at a group of trees. 90ft 5.7

P2: To gain the upper crack, pass a few trees and step left to a gear anchor at the base of a left facing corner with beautiful iron plates. Stem your way up and follow the crack as it leads left into a chimney. Reach the top of the tower and take in the view. 80 ft 5.8

P3: Step up onto the short continuation and reach a large ledge. Rappel off of the cordelettes down the corner and onto the top of the first pitch. 30ft 5.6

Location

Scramble up the gully left of Slot Club Wall. Follow cairns as you continue crossing a few hundred feet of vegetated slab. Squeeze between the wall and sharp bushes to reach a boulder tucked into the corner.

Protection

Standard rack up to #4 Camalot
Slings at the top of pitch 1
Cordelette at the top of pitch 3
