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


Probably the best route on the cliff. Overhanging crimps will get you to the pumpy finish. Watch for a bit of rotten rock right before the first clip.


The second route in on the left wall. It used to be the first bolted route but Mark Limage just added a 5.8 warmup to the left of Casino.

If you're good on crimps and can stay relaxed, this thing isnt that bad. Its fun climbing on pretty good holds. Compared to other .12a's around Red Rock, I don't think this thing qualifies- it's .11ish something for sure.

A very fun route, although quite a gimme for the 12a grade. Casino and its nieghbor, My Thai, are worth the hike up to the Oasis.
