Ocean ten bolts in on Salted Wounds.

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

Description 

Start as for SALT, but where the line splits, follow the line to the right, traversing through a section of thin crimps before gaining a good rail. Follow the line diagonally across the wall, following a large break, eventually working your way straight up through a large set of black varnish plates (some of which are a little hollow). One tricky move above the last bolt guards the chains. A short crux in a long enjoyable climb.

Protection 

12 bolts to chains.
