Some fun, short cracks here. I don't think it's necessary to bring a rope up to this cliff. The climbs are no more than about 15-20 feet tall, so they are easily boulder-able. Maybe if you were coming here to learn crack climbing skills, a rope would be useful... but it's not a great venue for that anyway.

Good for beginners like myself. Unfortunately Redlands Mesa security kicked me off the cliff band, said I was trespassing and they were going to be removing the fixed anchors.

Get in touch with the Western Colorado Climbers Coalition and find out if this indeed on private property. If it is not, they need to be notified that they have no business removing anchors etc.

I think a couple of folks from the WCCC are already on it and looking to both find out information and resolve the issue. Hope you're doing well, Jared!
