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


Start by boulder climb to bolt 40' up and follow thin seam to anchors. 70m rope required.

Poor rock, bad pro, glorified solo with 1 bolt 40' up for pro. While checking a placement I knocked off a flake 12" x 6". Avoid this route.
