BETA PHOTO: The excellent 'Little Red,' dihedral

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


Little Red climbs a right facing dihedral and arete up 30 short but sweet ft. The movement is super varied and completely fun on this compact, treat of a route. The only gripe I've ever heard about this line is that people wish it were 100ft. longer.


Pass north through the A-frame roof feature which makes up the western end of the Hidden Corridor proper and scramble up boulders for 50ft., until you reach an obvious right facing dihedral.


Single rack to 1.75".
Chain anchor.

The FA on this one was Mamusia+Van Betten, early eighties. They ran up it, never bothered to look back; just one more day of fun in the great outdoors. Chains are retrobolts but it's doubtful that the FA guys mind much. They could be better camo'd, though-
