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


This route has a reputation for being fun, with the crux being the moves required to pull the roof sequence at the top.


This is the second route on the right as you climb the trail.


several bolts to the anchors.

Great route. You can hit the deck from over 25 feet up if you fall while clipping the fourth bolt (on the roof). If you bring a 1 or 1.5 inch cam and a long runner, I think you can minimize the risk.

On 2/8/11, the ASCA replaced the anchors on this route with 1/2" x 2.75" SS 5-piece bolts and equipped them with mussy hooks.

Would be very exciting without a 1" cam! Very good route. But honestly pulling that roof is like... 10a. The harder moves are elsewhere on the route...

Great climb, really feels like a trad climb when you get to the crux. I brought the cam that others suggested, and although it wasn't totally necessary, I was glad to have it. Shoulder length sling for rope drag

Seems that this route is described as having one more bolt than it actually does. I looked around in the cave for a good 2 minutes before having my buddy carriage up a 1" cam on my rope to protect a pretty bad fall if you don't pull the roof correctly.

Other than that I can't complain about the routes fun factor. The face climbing at the beginning is definitely the harder part.
