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


Tricky start angling left up a seam on horrible, loose hangers, then straight up jugs and finger buckets to a good rest before a slightly cruxy headwall to anchor. Awesome route and easy for the grade.


Start left of Pet Shop Boys and shares start with Midnight Cowboy

Tupper told me that the "champion" in this case was Lynn Hill-she was trying to send this thing, Mike got a call from a buddy in the know and jumped in and finished the redpoint. I'd kinda always guessed it was a Bachar deal, apparently I was way off.

By the way, if this route is ten feet tall, then I'm a monkey's uncle.
