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

Description 

P1: Start up the slab toward corner where the two walls meet. Climb right through a steep, dark black bulge thats easier than it looks, then the wide crack above. Big ledge belay. 5.8

P2: Start in some more wide. You could take an attractive hand crack around left (small roof). Follow up the corner through a seam. Good holds finish up the pitch. Big ledge belay. 5.8

P3: Move the belay in the chimney. Transition to the south facing wall and head up toward the plates and hand/finger crack. A good sized ledge on the wall makes for a belay. 5.6

If done wisely Pitches 3 and 4 could be linked.

P4: Finsh up the plates on the left side of the wall, small crack for pro, through a small roof and topout. 5.6

Location 

To the right of creature feature 30' give or take. Decscend the buffalo wall approach or rap on bushes.

Protection 

We used a rack to 3" with one 4" and 5" cam each. Offset gear usefull. You could definetly use cams/gear bigger than a 5 on those wide cracks. No bolts or fixed gear.
