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


Start with a somewhat height dependent move up a varnished face to some easy crack climbing


The route is up the meetup wall gully on the right side. Walk off right

There seems to be 3 bolts with chains 30 feet up - either this route is now bolted or a newer short route has been established.

I believe I climbed this route today, and I am guessing this is the route to the left of pumpkin king since that is the only unaccounted for route in this area. Watch out for unstable foot and hand holds - my gf top roped this after I led it and the footing under her right foot chipped off about half way up. That could have been dangerous had she not been top roping. Fun route to speed climb otherwise, though a bit uncomfortable to belay.
