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


One of the classic friction routes in Red Rocks. Right up there with Smears for Fears and Rojo. Bring a couple of small cams to protect the opening moves to the first bolt. If you're under 5'10" clipping the first bolt will be hard and scary. Traverse left a bit then make hard moves to the slopy ledge. Rest the feet here you're going to need it. The next section traverses back right a bit and up on very thin slab. A couple of very shallow solution pockets will hopefully get you past the crux without taking the long whip.


The right hand route.


3 bolts and a couple of small cams.

This route is pretty ridiculous. Water comes down the thing, holds break and get smaller, next thing you know, it's traverse city, while solidly runout. Falling off would be a really bad idea at some spots.

That said, pretty memorable. Not the best rock in RR, but a challenge without doubt!

Hard! And like Killis said, looks like falling off would be a bad idea. VERY good route, but also quite difficult.
