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


climb the bolted face for pitch one.(60') Move directly left 15' from the anchor and head up the face along a small left facing corner past some small overhangs and follow cracks and face holds to the top. A very long pitch that may require moving the belayer left to give the climber enough rope to reach the top.


15' east of ATJ


P1 4draws and bolted anchor.
P2 Lots of .25 to 1" and a few up to 3" there are also two bolts. Belay anchor on top of ATJ.

I climbed this in April of '04 thinking it was "Spontaneous Enjoyment"
I have no idea who put in the bolts and/or who climbed it first. If anyone knows pass it on and I will update the information. We did the exact same decent as described in ATJ. I wish Todd's bolts were on top when we did it! I think you can use them now to belay from. I would also recommend a 70m rope.

Late March 2014, also climbed this believing it to be Spontaneous Enjoyment. I think Hadren's guide lists it this way. Great route on an intimidating face. I would call this a heady lead while not being technically difficult. Recommended!
