|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
Excellent varnished rock with good pro but not much of it. Not a recommended lead for a 5.6 leader. I never felt the route was dangerous, but you WILL climb above your protection before getting another piece.
The route follows a nice series of hueco ladders up an improbable looking black face. Easier than it looks, but felt a little harder than Heavy Spider Karma.
To the left of Heavy Spider Karma. Start on a boulder, high step right onto the face. Once at the top of the wall, either head way right to the Topless Twins bolted anchor, or there was some webbing around a boulder to the left to rap from.
.5 to 2.5" cams (1 ea.) and a set of nuts and slings.

Demonstrating the difference between "unprotected" and "tricky to protect," this climb gobbles up Tricams, offset Aliens, and other inobvious gear. I had solid pro at least every body-length. It's a gorgeous, somewhat unlikely-looking easy climb.
