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


It has been re-bolted and the line seems a bit easier than the guidebook suggests. Pumpy!


This route is to the left of Sound of Power.


6 bolts to shared anchors with Sound of Power.

As of today (3/9/2012) this route has its own anchors, two Mussy hooks. It no longer needs to share anchors with sound of power.

This thing is very broken. Seems on par with the rest of the 12c's in the park, for me. Because I'm so tall I had to do a dynamic throw for a quarter pad edge, right above the second bolt, and another one above the third bolt, after which the route eases in difficulty dramatically, to 11- climbing. Might be 12b is you're shorter.
