BETA PHOTO: Cochise 5.8

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


This route climbs the left leaning wide crack of mixed quality to the top of the buttress. A good way to apply basic wide technique. Some might avoid this climb, but you're not like them are you? You're a unique and beautiful butterfly.


Opposite side of canyon from Black Track.


Single #1-#4 and doubles #5 #6 camalots is what I used
