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


Start atop boulder just left of Go Ahead and Jump. Follow huecos and a shallow arch rightwards with a piece in the seam keeping you off the ground, make some reachy moves, then head left and clip a well-needed piece before moving into a resty pod. Place tiny wires above, blast up a thin face, and relax when you get to bigger holds near the topout. Anchor in handcrack just left of topout.


Climbs just left of Go Ahead and Jump starting up the seam and then heading left to the big pod. From there up+slightly left to top. Raps down GA+J tree anchor.


SR to 2", full set wires

Kinda sounds like another route here, Gettin Too old for this S--t. I did that with a client a year ago, but wasn't sure if it had been done before. Did Some Punter go slightly left and through the water streak at the top? if so, when, so one of us can modify our route description accordingly. i like your route name, though.

Gear doesn't seem to match, and the grey water streak looked pretty unappealing compared to thin-ness in perfect varnish, which stayed left of the greyness. Funny name on both though. This one pulls crux moves off tiny half-out wires, seems like if they followed the same topout, the alarming part would have been mentioned. Ya should give me a yell to get out sometime-we got FAs to do, sir. Stay up!
