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

Description 

The second route on this cliff. A bouldery start that shares the first few holds with Presents of Mind, then traverses right into steep climbing on good holds to the anchors.

Location 

Just right of Presents of Mind- look for the VERY high first bolt (stick clip mandatory).

Protection 

3 bolts, mussy anchor

On Wednesday, February 26th 2014, the ASCA replaced all protection bolts and the anchor of this route with ClimbTech glue-in wave bolts.
