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


Starts on the block at the base of a left-leaning ramp. Climbs a varied and interesting wall through a balancy start, a bouldery crux, and a pumpy finish.


Six bolts to anchors.

Sustained on decent or good holds. Quality movement though some of the surrounding rock seemed pretty friable.

Really fun route, but given that I one hanged it and am honestly not that strong, I think .11d is a bit much. Perhaps this route just matched my style, or all the ticks on it made looking for holds about as hard as looking for the next piece of tape in a gym.
