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


The second route on this cliff. A bouldery start that shares the first few holds with Presents of Mind, then traverses right into steep climbing on good holds to the anchors.


Just right of Presents of Mind- look for the VERY high first bolt (stick clip mandatory).


3 bolts, mussy anchor
