|Red Springs Rock Lower Tier
Pretty fun route with a thin and difficult crux right at the start. The start might be difficult to protect on lead so be careful. After the initial thin section; great and varied FUN finger crack to practice finger jams the rest of the way to the juggy roof move at top!
This route is the obvious vertical crack with a small roof about 10 feet up. Take the walk off the same as Hans Soloing!
If leading; take THIN gear up to 2 inches plus larger cams for an anchor on top. Recommend climbing Hans Soloing and setting up a top rope if not confident at the grade?? Also watch for some thin and fragile holds at the start.

bring micro stoppers for the start- without them, its a solo.

The start protects well, there's a #2 down low and you can stick in a small stopper equalized with a purple C3 before you commit to the hard moves. It's a cruiser after that.

I thought the start protected fine with a small stopper. You have a good stance to place a stopper above the roof before you pull it.
