This is a good route, but definitely sandbagged for a 5.10a at Red Rocks. Climbers who are just starting to lead at this grade will likely find it difficult and pumpy.

First bolt is a little high with a very dangerous landing. A stick-clip might be nice.

On 2/2/11, the LVCLC with support from the ASCA equipped the anchor of this route with mussy hooks.

If 10a is your limit putting this up will be HARD! One of the most sandbagged climbs in the park!
