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


just a longer more sustained version of the other climbs there. not too well travelled , only do multiple goes if the gallery is empty.


Start up The Gift (3 bolts) then traverse out right, and finish with the crux moves of Nothing shocking.


QD's are in place

Felt solid for 13b. Hard to work as you're monopolizing the whole wall sans Glitch.

Strange but over the years this route has gotten easier and harder based on holds breaking off and some new holds coming into existence. I have always really enjoyed this route and get on it everytime I come to Red Rocks
