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


Crux is near the top when the crack ends, getting over the bulge to the anchor.


Right route, starts with a crack on the right and a flake on the left.


New: crux has a bolt so go for it! First 4/5ths of the route trad to 1". I used yellow, orange and red Metolius plus a few small-med stoppers. Hooks anchor.

Really fun, but stout and a #6 HB offset is mandatory to protect the upper crux on this (you would hit the ground if you blew it above the nut and this piece pulled). The #6 is bomber, though- a regular nut may pop out.

Good fun, definitely a worth jaunt for the solid 5.10 trad leader.

Crux is now bolted. Go for it!
