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


This route begins in the Red Heat gully, and shares the same opening moves and bolted anchors with the route Plastic People. Climb the slab, trending left toward a roof. Make a few tenuous moves to gain the first bolt, crank the roof, then continue to the anchors (which are unable to be seen until the angle eases off).


Ascend the gully as for Plastic People. Route begins ~35 feet up the gully on a small landing.


7 bolts to a 2 chain anchor.

This route needs bolt replacement, and is still pretty crunchy. Shares anchor with Plastic People to the right.
