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


A better route than its neighbor, yet there is a blank section just before the halfway point that can cause some frustration for newbies. This route has a good variety of holds to warm-up the tendons for the harder climbs.


This is the fourth route up the hill on the right side.


6 bolts to the anchors

On 2/8/11, the ASCA replaced 6 protection bolts and the anchor bolts with 1/2" x 3.5" 5-piece bolts. The anchors are equipped with Fixe double ring hangers.

Note: the original protection bolts on this route were 1/4" stud bolts- all of which snapped with minimal effort during replacement!
