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


Loose, not very well protected climbing. Very soft rock in a few places. Start up a protectable crack a few feet right of Keep It Gutta and place everything you can, turn the roof on the right and try not to bring the house of cards down on yourself. Gear anchor in the cave, head left (thin pro available) to anchor of KIG to rappel, or walk off.


Far right route as of now on Jane's main wall. There was a small plaque in place we found reading "5.8 R fun" at the base.


Took gear to #2 camalot. Much of the gear seemed questionable.

This would be our route.. (Cory Fleagle & Liz Donley)

Done over Xmas 2013 5.8 R Walk off right.

We called it the Jay Smith Appreciation Route.

We had been reading about our friend (Jay) in the guide book, and about his
bold boltless ascents… You walk up, look at it, and climb it...
