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


Bonaire is the fourth route on the left (lower level) route encountered in the Black Corridor. Climb through 6 or 7 bolts to a fixed anchor at the top.


Quickdraws, fixed anchors at the top.

Decent route but best to avoid the first bolt IMHO because it's a uncomfortable clip and better/safer to just make that one more move to the better hold and clip the second bolt. Usual Black Corridor route, have at it!

The left anchor is loose. Great climb.

On 3/15/11 the ASCA replaced all 6 protection bolts on this route with 1/2" x 2.75" SS 5-piece bolts.

Note: Several bolts on this route were moved due to rock quality and clipping stances. In particular, the 2nd bolt was moved right to facilitate those who avoid the direct start, and the last bolt was moved to facilitate the clip from the good hold below the roof.

For those using this as a guidebook, Bonaire is now the 4th route on the left as you enter the corridor. The CEL is the 1st, followed by L2 and L3.

The right rap anchor ring is worn ½ way through in two places. Will need to be replaced in the near future. And comeon guys, top rope off your gear, not rap rings.
