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


Begin at a scoop to the right of Fear This Sport. Start by climbing the right of the scoop and trend left for a few bouldery moves. Easier climbing after the first bolt. An easier version of Fear This Sport; will clean up nicely with some travel.


Right of Fear This Sport. This route was bolted some years ago and appears in the old Swain book as a project. The bolts were pulled and as far as I know, the line was never sent. I re-bolted this route in early Sept., 2007. If it was sent before, then I hope an old route has been resurrected. Enjoy!


Four bolts and shared anchors with Fear this Sport. Optional - Clipping the last bolt of Fear This Sport. Stick clip first bolt!!! Soon I will add an extra bolt for the start.

The way I originally sent this route was to come from the left via a nice sized jug under the left end of the scoop/lip. That hold is now gone. Coming from the right is probably the same difficulty, just more reachy. I would call this solid 12b/c, not 5.13 as I have heard some people suggest over the last season. After the start and upon reaching the first bolt, the route eases significantly.
