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


Begins at the left edge of a white boulder that leans against the wall. A little thin above the second bolt, but fairly straitforward.

Roxanna's book says that you must set up a gear anchor at the top of this climb. There have since been bolts with chains installed at the top.

This climb is a good warm up for the 5.10a's to either side of it.


3-4 sport draws and something to clip to the anchor if you don't want to walk off the top.

I enjoyed this route. Steep with good holds and it was nice to have anchors at the top to come down with.

Fun route but too short. Would have been nice if this route went another 60 feet. Nice route for this crag. Good one to do laps on.

On 5/19/10 the ASCA replaced the anchor bolts on this climb and added mussy hooks to the anchors. Both new bolts are 1/2" x 3.5" 5-piece bolts.

Seemed Like there was a 5.7/5.8 move with the last bolt 6 feet below your feet. Spicy!
