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


You'll be climbing the beautifully tiger striped wall, right of the sharp arête, that is both concave and angular. The rock is perfect on this one. Stand start matched with a crimp rail at chest/head height in the concave and feet smearing. Move the left hand up over the roof onto a vertical crimp and begin a series of contortionist movements that have you palming out right, high stepping, body scumming and bumping through some edges. Top out directly through the looming Aron Ralston boulders. They seem solid!


20 ft. to climber's right of Dusty Taco.


Crash pads and spotters.
