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


Bro's Before Holes is a must-do for the offwidth and squeeze enthusiast. This route climbs an intimidating wide crack requiring significant physical effort and mental-pysch to send. Protected primarily with Big Bro's this climb is a unique experience destine to be added to your list of stories from Red Rock.


The obvious wide crack on the south facing corner between Midnight Oil and Bottle Bill.


Double #6, x3 Green and Blue Big Bros.

Old #4 protects the top section on easier but loose terrain.

There's currently a left-behind anchor up there, the tri-cam and purple nut are recent but the rest might be pretty old and is on shallow nuts. The anchor ought to be at the top of the business, under the hourglass choss but that would require large cams or (ahem!) hardware.
