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


My Favorite of the routes on this wall! Make powerful moves right out of the gate! Move up past a tricky section at a horizontal crack, and on up to a sloping ledge! A technical crux up a steep section of wall leads up onto another sloping ledge. Move up right onto a small pillar, (hidden holds make this section much easier), Super fun technical moves up a shallow corner lead to a short run to the anchor!


20 + feet left of "T.R.Q." Starts with the overhang at your chest, where the ground\ledge slopes steeply down to the left.


13 bolts and anchors, all glue in bolts with Pig Tail lower offs. This route is well protected, with the moderate leader in mind, (but there is a bit of spice at the top to keep the more advanced leaders psyched)
