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


This route is located in the northern wing of the Flight Path Area. There are five routes here that share the same bolted anchor at the top. This route is the second from the left. On the far left is a rightward curving inside corner (Sex in the Scrub Oak). Ignore the Man is about ten feet right of the corner and it follows the obvious crack to the belay ledge with a pine tree.

Rappel with one 60 meter rope.

Super fun! definately worth the walk which is a bit longer than 30 minutes as the cairns become hard to spot going up through the red rock bands just head up and you will find it. Great Pro and to a Great anchor rap 1 60 meter, the route is right on 90-95 feet long, as is the whole wall and there is an awesome looking overhanging crack just above "Sex in the Scrub Oak" (corner to the left of Man Behind) to chains that looks real good, anyone know what that is?

A really good, well-protected easy lead.
