Karen on Babylon 5....8.

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


The most center route on the main wall. Pull up onto the face to the right of the chimney, and work up past bolts to a big break with a massive horn of rock. Step above this and head to the anchors.


Four bolts to chins.

Okay route- the start is going to get much harder over time, after the initial difficulties, its a fun romp to the top.

Will be getting harder as things chip off. The first 15 feet of this wall is where the fun stuff is. Stands true for this route.

Right anchor bolt is very loose. Can freely twist it with fingers.
