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

Description 

Start up the system to the right of Greased Lightning ending at the same ledge for 1 or 2 pitches. Continue up the system above for 4-5 more pitches. Be careful of loose rock on the next pitch up left around the corner. The next pitch goes out on the face and back left to the corner at .10b. The following pitch climbs the desperately smooth tips corner at cruxy .10c. Then climb the chimney, it is not as hard as it looks. Add another pitch and find your way back down rappels mostly on route.

Protection 

Gear, offwidth isn't needed for the chimney, but couldn't hurt.
