Comments: Was up at the perch yesterday (6/25) crossing Redfish creek is extremely hairy. The creek is Class 4/5 rapids and lapping over the log bridge over the creek.

Comments: Highly recommend doing the 5.8 crack/corner on the 3rd? pitch. Eats two #1 camalots and puts you a great ledge on the overhanging right face a little earlier. A nice face pitch links into the pipe pitch from here.
Staying right higher up 5.8+ also yields some nicer rock. Took 3 tries to finally get a good day to do this one and will always remember it. A truly great route with a feeling hard to get east of the rockies.

Comments: As of late august 07 there was a nice two bolt anchor just to the left on the slab above the top-out. Nice clean aid line.
