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


This is a good mixed route that starts just right of Frigid Air Buttress. Climb up the face, eventually passing 4 bolts. Work up the varnished slab and pass the white roof on the left edge. Move back right passing two more bolts to a bolted anchor.


Blue Bunny starts 50' to the right of the first pitch of Frigid Air Buttress.

2 ropes are required to rap off.

It looked possible to pendulum hard to the east and hit the anchors at the top of the flake on the 1st pitch of Frigid Air Buttress, making it possible to get off with one rope. I did not try this and it will take a fairly aggressive pendulum.


Single rack to 1".
6 bolts.
Fixed anchor at the top.

This route is terrible. The sections in between the poorly placed bolts are very runout with poor protection in extremely soft/hollow rock. Highly recommend avoiding this route. Head over to Fold Out instead on the Necromancer wall if your looking for something easy and fun to do.

Aside from some fragile edges in the first 10 feet, the rest of the route is fine. Bolts and rap chains new. Not runout, just no chalk to follow
