BETA PHOTO: corona.. runout 10 on dangerous flakes...

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

Description 

About 30' to the right of Solar Flare, climb a clean, left-facing corner. When the corner gets too smooth, make a delicate step left. There is a bolted anchor a short distance above the overhang. It is possible to move left below the overhang and join the easy crack leading to the second belay on Solar Flare.

Protection

Be advised; this climb is 10a/b "r"... someone will get busted up on this climb...the crux is run out on brittle flakes, lateral 10 feet... and up 10 feet from corner where last pro is... result would be a pendulum (most likely upside down) into corner. The sandstone flakes will give. Would be a quality climb with the addition of one bolt (IMHO).....
