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

Description 

A really fun line that climbs straight up the face. The climb is deceiving; where it looks easy, it isn't as easy as it looks. Where it looks hard, it isn't as hard as it looks. Say no more - we'll ruin the fun. Get on it and enjoy, the clipping stances are great! A great place to take pics of folks on CYT or leading this climb or Mark Limage's November Daze just to the west of this line. We really struggled with this being 5.8 or 5.9, please let us know what you think!

Location 

About 40 feet west of the left edge of CYT. This climb and November Daze go up the same face.

Protection 

8 bolts to a great ledge and chains.

AWESOME climb with one move up high that looks more freaky than it really is if you'll just go for it!! Have Fun!!

Enjoyable climbing with good stances and a nice view into Calico. It felt like 5.8 to me.

As easy as it looks; 5.8 is generous.

Super fun, as was 'November Daze'
However, I agree with gilbert,
I thought it barely harder than 'November Daze'
5.8 is generous.

Avoiding pulling on the fragile flakes made this a 5.9. There is a big flake about halfway up the size of a kitchen counter that felt really hollow. The sketchiness of this flake kinda ruined it for me.

Are you guys using a 60m rope? This description says 85 ft which puts me in comfort range for rappelling. My guide book says 100 ft, which doesn't.

Even a 100' route is safe to rappel with a 60m line- a 60m line is always cut long when its new (they range between 62m and 65m), and it shrinks with age. Even a true 60m will only be short of the ground by about 18" on a 100' route. You'll be fine.

Do a sit start on the right corner and it will earn the 5.9 :). My partner started on the rock higher and to the left and clipped the first bolt before starting. Good moves all the way.
