Senior Moment 5.5

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


Climb the varnished crack system on the face to the left of the Pillar Talk pillar. Bear right at the top.

Not impresses by this route. Climbed about 20 feet up, and in that span broke 3 big holds. Seems sketchy.

Great route. With more climbing it will clean up. There is some slings and rap rings at the top but dont be fooled. Rap from Sleeper. 60M rope will not cut the mustard for the rao down. Doubles.

I found this to be a surprisingly good route with interesting features. The route must have cleaned up, I didn't see any loose rock. This is a good way to access the upper tier. As mentioned, to rappel, double ropes are the only way to go, even a single 70 won't get the job done.

You can rap Sleeper with a single 70m line if you dont want to drag a second rope out there.

Very nice climbing. Apparently it has cleaned up a bit, as we had no issues with rock quality. An esthetic way to reach Chocolate Tranquility Fountain.
