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


The left handed crimp off of the left-facing jug flake near the bottom is definitely harder than 5.9 as is suggested by the Swain guidebook. The rest of the route is mellow.


About 10 feet left of A Man in Every Pot, and in front of the rightmost of two similarly-sized scrub oak bushes.


3 bolts (I think a 4th was added after the Brock book's printing) up to the chain anchors.

I actually enjoyed this route quite a bit....especially the upper moves; fairly continuous. Had to do it again.

On 5/19/10 the ASCA replaced the first bolt and the anchor on this route. In addition, mussy hooks were added to the anchor. All bolts are 1/2" x 3.5" 5-piece.

Fun route a little ran from the last bolt top anchor, but really fun.

There is a fourth bolt, eliminating the formerly run-out finish. The first bolt is rather high; suggest either stick-clip or bring a TCU for the crack prior to the bolt.

I would also call this 10 a/b. the move after the first bolt and to the fourth bolt were much harder than the 9+ rating led me to expect. I thought it was much harder than the 10a (Handren) to the right.

Fun. I also thought the first bolt was quite easy to get to, though high.

First bolt is definitely high, but it's like 5.5 jugs getting there.
