Jugs out the big roof

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


This route goes out the obvious splitter crack in the 15-20ft roof just south and east of the parking lot. The roof is very obvious. To acess the roof scramble up an easy 5th class gully, climbers left, some people will want a belay up this section. There is a good ledge at the start of the roof, you'll want a small selection of gear to build an anchor here. climb out the Fist crack doing approximately 3 fist moves before gaining jugs.

Descend by going south and east to the obvious gully- it's a walk off.


Cams! Take a couple of each from #3-#4.5 Camalots (old-style).

A total hoot circus trick climb. I have not done it in 25 years but I recall with one big cam to start and a couple 2.5-3.5 inches at the end you could climb it safely. Huge jugs at the roof exit. Near the lip you can get great leg jam and hang for a fun upside down shot.
