"Just in from L.A." action. December 201...

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


This route has some really fun moves at the bottom through the roof/crack system, and then some technique sequences toward the top. The Swain book rates it 5.11b, but I think 5.11- is generous... Be sure to have a spotter to protect you should you fall through the lower crux (have them stand on the boulder).


Directly to the right of "Far Cry from Josh", you start atop the huge block and climb up and to the right.
