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

Description 

The crack in the middle of the Particle Man buttress behind Iron Man. Thin hands to fingers up the slab with a bunch of face holds. A large break interrupts the the climbing, and a fistjam and face holds bring you to Particle Man's anchor.

Protection 

Standard Rack to chains (on Particle Man).

A #3 Camalot or equivalent would be nice for the upper crack. I didn't have one, but was able to finagle in a thin cam in a horizontal -- not totally reassuring given the soft rock.
