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


Can be toproped from Amazing Grace anchor. I did not lead this route as the bolted style is old school and spaced a bit to far for me. The crux for me was under the roof. Thin smears with marginal holds.


Bolts (old school)

The route's heady but not too bad if you're solid at the grade. The shared anchor with Amazing Grace is solid, new stainless and is good to go. I may get around to replacing the pro bolts on this one one of these days but they looked pretty good to me, so I left them alone. As far as the moves I'll just say be dialed on small-hold Red Rock slab, wear a good pair of shoes, and don't rush it. I felt that the upper slab crux felt more intense to me than the roof moves.

Mostly mellow, but one very very thin move just below the small roof is a crux. Great rock means you stick to it.
