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


Sir Climbalot sits at the far left side of Moderate Mecca between The Road to Mecca on the left and The Haj on the right, above an acacia tree. Start at the same spot as for The Haj, and bear up and left along the angling crack and corner system. At about sixty feet up, on easier ground, bear right to the communal anchor, a pair of bolts with chains on a vertical face. Watch for scree toward the top. Rappel with a 60m rope.

Very good route for the area just watch for some crumbly rock; not to hard to find some solid placements just look around a bit! This route shares anchors with the Haj and Route to Mecca and Treacherous Journey!

fun climb, i top roped this route after climbing the route to mecca. the protection would be a bit more scarce than route to mecca, but i felt route to mecca was a better climb! harder start- equal finish

I disagree about protection being more sparse. You could put a cam every 4 feet. If you like Moderate Mecca, you will greatly enjoy this climb. It's one of my favorites.

Correction to route description: there is now a set of anchor chains at the top and slightly LEFT of this line. Because of this it's also less than 90 feet - more like 70.
