BETA PHOTO: The mantle start...
|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
Another Black Corridor route, this time with the crux down low with one heck of a tricky mantel move.
This is the 5th route on the left wall (East Facing) in the Upper Black Corridor and only 4-5 feet to the right of Dancin' with a God. Start the route on a small left facing flake and pull the difficult mantel about 10 feet up.
5 Bolts should find you at the fixed anchors for your rappel; stick clipping the first bolt on this route would be recommended.

might be time for the second bolt replaced if anyone is out that way swapping bolts

This route is the perfect example of how cheap, placed as fast as possible on rappel bolts can be stupid and dangerous, and uneccessarily so.
All bolts and anchor replaced in mean ass heat yesterday. The second bolt would have pulled if it took a hard fall. Moved the replacement bolt to solid rock, also had to move the third substantially to find good rock.
Use your hammer to tap the rock before drilling, please.
