Climbing Hotline

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


Hotline climbs the righthand arete of the Alternative Crag, keeping on the overhanging side.

Steep rock, powerful moves, no holds smaller than a full pad characterize this fun route.


Reach around the corner from Flying Rats to clip the first bolt - best for the belayer to be down below the ramp.


7 bolts to a bolted anchor.

Awesome route and it's currently equipped with project draws except for the first bolt which is easily clipped from a jug.
