Access Issue: RAIN, WET ROCK and RAPTOR CLOSURES: The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Also please ask and be aware of Raptor Closures in areas such as CAT WALL and RESERVOIR WALL in Indian Creek Details

Description

A Peter Gabriel song from the eighties references red rain pouring down. I have no idea where the name of the route came from but it may have something to do with the red choss I rained down at my belayer. Don't lose your stoke now-it gets much much better!

Scamper up past 15 feet of chinle choss. Gaze up at crisp beautiful black varnish, it is going to be so good. Fire in a few tips pieces and stem/chimney up to the obvious green camalot roof. Notice that all the feet are in just the right places. After the roof you are cruising through some hands to a nice stance. Somewhat strenuous, flared blue camalots lead to a small roof, a splitter and the anchor (which could use some work: angle, tat, bandito pull tab).

Location

  • Look above the layer of chinle for a left facing corner with a large bulge 10 feet off the choss.

Protection
