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


A single long pitch to climb the cliff on sparse or interesting gear. A 60M rope MIGHT make the top, but I did it with a 70M and believe it would be a close call. As well, the bottom of the route is hard and would be a terrible place for a climber to fall simul-climbing.
Climb from the base of Gonzo Dogs, going up and right past some short slashes/seams/cracks to access the bottom of several bolts. Continue up these and to the face above to finish on easier, but runout climbing. Belay up top from trad gear.


This is the right-most of the slab routes on the dome and climbs from the base of Gonzo Dogs, to the right to access a different set of bolts and gear. This is just left of the super-steep "Fear and Loathing II"


A rack of thinner gear, from small nuts to tcu's plus a few draws for the bolts. The route will be heady.
