BETA PHOTO: The Liner - obvious hand crack about 150 feet to t...

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


Climbs the straight, slightly right-angling handcrack on the left side of the rock. It's a pretty straightforward climb, with plenty of gear in the crack and featured rock on the face. This route appears in Handren's 2007 Guidebook.


About 150' left of The Great Red Book proper.


Singles to 3" should do it. The anchors are off to the right on a ramp, so make sure to extend your last piece. There are quicklinks, not rap rings, so make sure to rappel instead of lowering if you don't want to pig-tail your rope.

An OK route, did this while waiting to start Red Book with some friends. A couple of holds broke off in my hands towards the top, and no it wasn't raining, so make your belayer wear a helmet- like you already should be doing ;)
