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

Description

Bad Blood is a great mixed line at the left end of the Blood Wall. It kicks off with a comical boulder problem moving past a pocket and then continues up a varnished face, traversing rightwards on great rock before continuing up to a high anchor.

The route climbs through a few mossy patches but the essential holds are clean... it's only a bit of friable rock in spots up high that keep me from giving this three stars. Were it not for the start it would be a great warmup for the harder climbs on the wall (still, you could easily aid through this start if necessary).

Mostly bolted, but have a single set of cams to 0.5 Camalot and optional medium wire as well.

Location

Begin at the left end of the main Blood Wall, starting on top of two large red cheater-stones. The FA was done without these, but it's a slightly better route with them. The cool pocket that marks the start is obvious.

Protection

A dozen draws, a few long slings, and a single set of cams from tiny to 0.5 Camalot. A medium wire is helpful. A full 70m rope - watch your ends carefully, you can barely lower off with a 70 and stretch.
