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


Two pitches of fun climbing capped by a delightfully long left facing corner.

P1: Fifth class up a slightly mossy start directly under the route. Sporty moves down low get you started.

P2: The start is a bit spooky on perfect varnish. Another sporty section that protects and climbs nicely.

P3: Long pitch. Perfect rock. Cruise (or struggle) past some wide sections. Savor the slightly intimidating stretch of perfect fingers. Then jam your way through various sizes to the anchor.


Route goes up the large left facing corner that defines the right side of the Cauldron wall.

Rap with one 70 meter rope. On the first rap descend climber's left to anchors on The Regatta. Easy to get too. Continue down The Regatta. Down climb a bit after last rap.


Doubles up to 2". Singles up to 5". Would bring one 00 C3 for pitch 2. Strong parties will not need anything over 3"

Was much happier to have a set of RP's than a 00 or 000 for that short thin section on P2.

Really great route the whole way. Sep 21, 2017

The first two pitches on this climb are pretty good, but the last pitch is an amazing ~150 foot perfect crack that's mostly fingers with some sections of every other size too. You can rap the route in two raps with two 60 foot ropes. All the anchors are bolted as of 4/16/2017. Apr 17, 2017

Combine the first two pitches.
Every pitch has some vegetation/bushes/weeds that can get in the way. Upper portion of pitch 3 is covered in bird poop. The moss clumps on the wall can disintegrate and fill your eyes with moss dust. Yer gonna die! Aug 20, 2016
