DeAngelo stylin it.

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


A nice crack with a moderate approach but can be a nice afternoon jaunt to top off Olive Oil.


Go up the Olive Oil Descent Gulley. At the top of the gulley to climber's left there is a nice varnished wall with two nice cracks. This is the right of those two cracks. You can walk off to the climber's right.


Standard rack will get you to the top but be prepared to build your own anchor in cracks at top.

pretty good climb- worth doing on your way down. this route is easier if you're taller for sure, but still not too bad- 5.8ish or so. maybe 5.7, whatever.
