Climbing in Red Rocks after heavy rain can permanently damage the rock! MORE INFO >>>


On the cliff bands below the Blood Wall there is a varnished face split by a crack. Climb the crack straight up to a pine tree at its top.

The obvious descent is to scramble left (east) and do a short rappel into the tiny canyon leading back to the base of the route.


Walk up the Oak Creek trail, passing beneath the Solar Slab, and drop into the streambed. Go upstream to a point where some brushy third class leads up and left (south) to a ramp system going back toward the road. When you are beneath the route, climb up a 150' fourth-class slab. People less cowardly than myself may scamper up this section with no thoughts about next-of-kin, but we roped up for the ascent. Having just a single rope, we descended this section by down-leading, which seemed like a reasonable compromise.
