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


This climbs the right side of the boulder referred to as Boulder 1. Many eliminate variations exist.


Pad, I guess.

V3 variation: Start with left hand on circular crimp and right hand slightly higher on the other logical crimp. Smear feet and bump left hand to slopey ledge, bump again to gain higher ledge with small lip. Move right hand to lower slope then work feet high. Extend to jug ledge with right and top out.

A buddy of mine and I were working this and we normally boulder v4/v5. Seeing this rated as a V-Easy was a bit stunning at first then we realized we were making it hard. Sometimes the easy lines aren't as apparent whenever you're looking for harder stuff.
