BJ Cook climbing Foe 5.11a

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


Big holds, a good rest. Past a big scoop over a bulge to a small mantle.


Just right of Friend and just left of Nightmare on crude street in the lower corridor, right side..

Find the shrubby tree in the center of the corridor.


5 quickdraws, 2 bolt anchor

On 5/14/10, the ASCA replaced the first and fourth bolts on this route along with the anchor bolts with 1/2" x 3.5" 5-piece bolts. The anchor bolts were moved down about 3' due to rock quality concerns and are now equipped with mussy hooks.

One of the nicest routes we climbed in the corridor. Really cool move pulling over the bulge on a crimp, slapping to a decent edge. Definitely get on it!

really enjoyed this route. i yoyo'ed it with my rope gun. i would say it's more difficult if you're short. i'm 5'3" and -2 and she's 5'0" and +1. neither of us were able to reach the crimper in the hueco coming from the left. i had to use the face crimp and quickly slap the hueco and tension up into it. loved the climb, felt like a v1/2 boulder problem in the middle of a climb. get on this!
