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


Follow 6 bolts of the left side of the boulder, to ring anchors.

A new route not listed in any guide books, we top roped it after climbing Coyote Moon, so the rating may be a little off. This route seems a little harder than Coyote Moon but at the same time it is more closely bolted.


A couple feet left of Coyote Moon, starts from the same boulder.


6 bolts, ring anchor.

If you know the name of this route or have FA info, please let me know and I will make the changes to this page. As I stated, the difficulty listed is tentative because we only top roped the route. Aug 4, 2018
Hi, John. We (Pete Bresciani, Jon Cheney and Michele Onsaga) put up this route... I don't remember when. :-) Maybe 2011 or 12. We called it "The Cat and the Bird" and thought it was 9+ too. 2 hours ago
From our anchor you can top rope straight down and a little left, starting below the boulder for a 10d route. We thought it'd be a squeeze job so never bolted it. 2 hours ago
