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

Description 

Crux as you pass a horizontal bulge, bolt protected. Crux is delicate feet and interesting hands. Good traverse and smearing. Protect well past the bulge for your follower.

Location 

North (Left) side of Sandy Corridor. Find the long right rising seam on the left wall. There's a bolt about 10 feet up. traverse the seam using gear to 2". Take several small pieces. Belay when the crack runs out or when you find a good belay spot to walk off. Walk off climber's left.

Protection 

Mixed, Pro to 2". Several bolts. Build a belay.

A climb you have to trust your feet on, slopey sandy holds. Where there isn't good gear there is a bolt to keep you from shitting yourself. The easy climbing on the second half is a little runout. There is a tree at the top of the wall you can use for an anchor if you don't have any gear left which was the case for me.
