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


A gymnastic and bouldery route up the steep face to the right of Dirty Little Girl. The pockets down low tempt you into thinking this one might not be too bad- and it isn't, assuming you can sort the beta quickly and efficiently.

I would recommend pre-hanging the first two draws and stick-clipping the first on this one to keep your ankles intact if you biff the opening boulder problem. Don't worry- it's not the crux!


Immediately right of Dirty Little Girl. A few pockets on a smoothish face with bolts is route route. Can easily be TR'd after climbing DLG.


6 bolts to shuts
