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


This route starts about about 10 feet left of Radio Free Kansas, and about 25 feet left of the huge right-facing corner. Climb past six bolts to the top. This route merges with Radio Free Kansas at the top.


Mostly good bolts.

Another fun face route on this secluded wall. Well protected with just a tiny bit of hollow flakes up high. Thanks to the people that put in the effort to est. this area!

Fun climbing. I placed two Aliens and two Tricams to supplement the bolts.
