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


Climb the right approach pitch (5.5) to an anchor below the corner, then head up the steep corner with the finger to hand crack and small face holds. When the wall kicks back, the crack widens abruptly and the large holds appear on the righthand wall.


Either rappel with one 60m rope or walk off to the left (south). ~10 min.


Single rack to 3". Either build an anchor and walk off, or traverse over to Outlier's anchor.

Dave Burns informed me yesterday that this route saw a first ascent probably 20 years ago, but couldn't remember the original name or first ascentionist. I've updated the route accordingly.
