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


Link up starts on Glitter Gulch for 3 bolts then moves right into Slave to the Grind for 3-4 then finishes on the last bolt or 2 of Sister of Pain. We clipped a long sling on the last bolt of Slave then stepped down to do the final traverse.


Starts on Glitter Gulch and finishes on Sister of Pain.


bolts. A few long slings are helpful to reduce drag.


Thanks for your input Mick. I indeed know what bolts I clipped and included a picture. Feel free to actually contribute to the site yourself instead of saving your energy to criticize those who do.
It appears at least one admin disagrees with you since it's been a month since he commented. Again, it's not "my linkup shenanigans" it's the best line on the wall according to Handren (the 2nd most knowledgeable expert on Red Rocks after yourself). Jul 10, 2017
I think we should also make a rule that you can only comment on routes that you can climb. Jun 13, 2017
It's not every possible linkup, it's "the best line on the wall" according to Handren. Go ahead and remove if you want. MP won't let me. Jun 13, 2017

So I guess the local consensus is my planned girdle traverse of the Black Corridor isn't Mountain Project worthy? Jun 12, 2017

^+1 yes, let's please not confuse everyone by posting every possible link up at the sport crags! This can get ridiculous. I'm sure it was fun to do a little bit of each of these 3 awesome routes at once, but just leave it at that. You had fun. Beware because Wolfgang may tell you this linkup is only 10d!! Jun 12, 2017

To be this really worthy of being uploaded as a separate route? Props to you for stitching the link up together but this is going to throw off descriptions on other routes .... when they say things like "3rd from the left" or "the route next to such and such" especially when it really inst a new route just sort of a 'variation'.

Maybe instead post on the Glitter Gulch page "We did this fun link up that starts on Glitter Gulch" and post the information there. Jun 12, 2017
