Ocean nears the crux of Grizzly.

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


Climb the left approach pitch (5.6) to a bowl with an anchor, then climb the right line of bolts to a standing rest below a steep varnished wall. Climb through three bolts of positive holds that get smaller and smaller, until faced with a tiny crimp and very long reach just below the anchor (crux). A lovely climb; my favorite on the wall.


Rappel with one 60m rope.


Bolts to chains.

A fine climb on a fun cliff. Still crispy, as the cliff is very new, but fun movement on good rock.

Still quite chossy, ripped off a hand sized flake near the crux today. Great fun nonetheless!
