BETA PHOTO: Jody is on Route to Mecca, Treacherous Journey is ...

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


This is the next left facing corner to the left of Route to Mecca. Climbs the steep loose corner to a low angle hand crack. Eventually join Route to Mecca and rappel from the "99-cent store" chain anchor.

As the name implies, a loose outing that's hard to recommend as a lead climb, but an ok TR if you're in the area.


standard rack.

The flake ten feet up the right wall and below the overhanging bulge is dangerous. Treat it gingerly (stay left). The route is loose above the bulge, too. This is a one-move-wonder that felt very soft for the grade. Barely worth it.
