Chris Parks follows 'Spilt Ends' at Red Rocks. Pho...

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


A thin face climb on a near-vertical face. The left-most of a few adjacent face routes, it is the harder but the better protected. Climb past multiple thin moves on slopers to the anchor up top and lower off. It is a simple but fun route.


This route is the left-most of the bolted routs to the left of Nevada Book and to the right of Split crack. This and 'Split Infinitive' both start from the top of a rounded ledge and near a nasty bush or two. Access their bases by fighting past a boulder in a funky gully below Nevada Book.


An handful of draws or slings for the bolts.

The anchor needs replaced, I climbed this route on Dec 28th to find an anchor of sun-bleached and frayed webbing.
