EJ Follow Pitch One
|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
The last rib on the right side of the First Creek Slabs. If you hit the Echove you've gone too far.
This is a long moderate route with relatively good rock that protects well.
P1 - start up a dark varnished right facing corner with huge holds and good protection (150')
P2 - step up and onto lighter colored rock with little "nubbins" that will flake off with weigh. work your way up and left to the face of the rib (150')
P3 - follow a nice crack to the base of the wave (175')
P4 - follow the crack up and thru the brown wave and follow a good crack another 125' to a ledge with an ancient piton (175')
P5 - follow the face for an easy pitch, belay on top of the rib (175')
P6 - step down and follow a vegetated crack for about 100' and then head up left at a large tree, belay 30' to the left of the tree (130')
P7 & P8 - follow cracks up the center of the face trending left for two pitches to a ledge were you can access the stand first creek rappel (300')
