Melissa on Potzo's Pudding

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


A nice little route that will get your blood flowing. Slightly tricky to protect and it gets quite steep about half way up. Fun.

Rappel from the sling anchor atop Mc-Crack-En with one rope.


Shoot up the crack on the fin between the Zacker Cracker gully on the left and the Mc-Crack-En area.


Standard rack.

Most of the climb is 5.6, but I would rate the crux a bit harder and the placement options there were not obvious. Not recommended for beginning trad leaders.

The tat at the thread anchor was starting to look old and brittle.

My rope got stuck and I couldn't pull it through. I led back up on a second rope to recover it. On my second rap I went more on the face instead of down through the slot on climbers left to alleviate the problem.

We replaced the various threaded tat with 7mm static cord -- equalized, tied off, redundant. No issues pulling the rope.

Fun, secure moves through most of it. I felt it was well-protected. If only it was longer. Rap tat issue could be resolved with a bolt anchor. But who would dare..
