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


Fun and rewarding; not the most solid sandstone, though, so still getting a little harder as holds and parts of holds join the sand dune below. Pumpy up to and through the crux on mostly positive holds, then easy cruisin' to the top. There are easier sequences for the savvy RR climber to find past the traverse.


Far left route on crag, obvious due to splitter looking RF corner/flake.

The rock seemed very solid on this route. A few minor footholds flaked off up high but all the integral handholds stayed intact. This route is quite good! Awesome finger crack moves lead to a burly boulder problem and then on to a great patina face. Great!

This thing is great! I feel like the crux could go one of four or five different ways. I liked the right hand gaston to left hand cross under to crimp to big hold out right, but seems like more people are going straight up to the bigger sidepull above the first.
