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

Description 

This route begins just above the First Creek Slabs descent gully. Start up a wide crack leading past a large bush (this is also the beginning of the Guinness Book), and bear left when possible to belay beneath a big, left-facing corner. Three pitches lead up the dihedral. The third involves strenuous liebacking to a small ledge. Above this point the corner becomes unprotectable, but an improbable escape to the right allows progress to a large ledge. From the left end of the ledge, follow the chimney system for several pitches to the summit ridge.
