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


P1 Face climb to the right finger crack system that leads over a bulge (crux, nuts & small cams) into the main corner/crack system. Climb this past a sandy split in the crack. When the split rejoins, move out left on featured holds in the black, varnished face; trend up and left to an alcove in white rock, possible belay further left beneath the oak tree growing straight out of the cliff under a triangular roof. P2 From the belay, angle back right to regain the central crack system which is followed to the summit.
