Coin taking the heartbreaker.

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


Dying Breed follows the pretty seams and cracks through the nice varnish. Falling before your first piece would not be too fun, especially with out a pad. Once through the initial sequence and you have your first piece this climb is not run out, just spicy!

Start on two chalked up small plates, take a deep breath and pull bouldery moves up and left to a stance to get your first piece. Continue up the steep wall with pretty good gear, there will be a section or 2 that feels a little bold. Get a good rest and gear before punching through the great finish on this classic test piece.

It is easy to rap and check out placements before tying in... I'm glad I did.


second route from the left. between the 11c on the arete and the bolted 12c


Mostly small. Bring the c3s, small masters (to a yellow), rps and wires. it has 2 bolts for the anchor. The pro is good but you'll have to work for it and want an attentive belayer
