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


Starts 40 feet right of the arete separating the main northwest face of Civ from the southwest face. Climb the slab to a break where a few steeper moves on huge jugs take you back to slab climbing up and left to anchors.
The inconsistent face directly below the anchor can be climbed at a mellow 5.3, save for 10 feet of steep 5.8 terrain.


On the southwest face, the furthest left bolted line.


Five bolts to chains.

I never really knew what people meant when people commented about routes needing to be cleaned up until this weekend. We climbed four of the routes right of the trad climb (including the 5.8, 5.9, and 5.10. They all had multiple holds break on us. Even being careful, much of the climb is still very friable.
