Stemming the huecos of iron maiden.

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


Climbs the obvious line on the right side of the main wall. Third class to a balancy step over to the first bolt leads to a small bulge. A couple more balancy moves pull up into the beginning of hueco juggy goodness. Climb the huecos to the short, steep face with sharp, positive edges; committing moves all the way to the chains.


Bolts to chains.

Great route! Has a little bit of everything from slabby face to huecos and finally overhanging face/arete. The route has good flow w/ nicely positioned bolts. Just make the first clip and the rest is golden.

This route would get three stars if not for the rotten band of rock between the first and second bolt. We witnessed two significant breakages in a short session.

The rock down low is suspect if your pulling out and not down. Remember where you are. Great route. 11c if you go direct to chains and 11a if you go left from last bolt. If you stay on route don't worry about rock quality. Enjoy.
