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


Shallow Dihedral that goes up and right to rusty anchors.

Did you climb this thing? Saw you posted Left Crack but noted no ascent, having done this climb I'd be surprised if this description was all you'd have to say about it if you'd broken out the rack for this one. It's a pretty exciting lead!

Update: Did this again today, replaced anchors with bomber ASCA stainless with prudent white-rock spacing. Rock is still crunchy, but a fun lead. Around 9+ not 10+, maybe 10- if you're not up on white rock technique. Double rack to .75 is recommended, wires protect well on this one also, but are tougher to spot. Route has lots of gear but is still shedding holds including in the gear placements; PG-13 for sure, be careful on this one, but it's fun and well worth it!
