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

Description

A nice combination of delicate balance, powerful bouldering, and edgy face climbing, all in the first three bolts. After that the climbing eases considerably.

The crux is getting above the second bolt, which you should high clip with your feet in the bowl, since getting much higher than this before clipping the second bolt would mean a potential ground fall.

Location

This route is in between Pain in the Neck and A-Cute Pain. It goes through the big bowl/pocket to the right of Pain in the Neck. The first bolt is in the middle of the pocket.

Protection

This is a sport route -- I think there were 6 bolts and the anchor -- but we placed a small cam (0.3 C4) from the ground to protect the belayer, since the route starts on a ledge.

We thought this was Pain in the Neck when we climbed, but then we looked at the photos on here for Pain in the Neck and noticed the bolts on this route are not in them! So, this must be a relatively new route. Feb 21, 2016
