This is an EXCELLENT sport route on the left side of the Coco Crag about 3 feet right of the obvious chimney. Varied movements; great protection; and climbing that is much steeper than it appears from the ground; as good as any sport route in Red Rocks at the grade IMHO. Brock guidebook says 10b but it might be 10a'ish??
This is the first obvious bolted line just right of the chimney. Rappel from the anchors with one 60 meter rope; a 50 might make it too??
8 Bolts lead to some anchors on the slab above. The route is well protected and climbs great.

i think the grade works if you stick to the bolts at the roof/arete, it's easy to go waay left and pull up on dyna-jugs but it's sketchily away and around from the bolt... that's my take on it anyway. it IS fun, the one on the right is awesome too!

Please update the protection. There are now 9 bolts with open loop anchors on top. 4-26-11.

A joy of a climb! It has a little bit of everything mixed in. Add to that some nice views at the top and being away from the hustle and bustle of the popular crags and you have yourself a gem - definitely worth the hike out!

Based on the movements and some slightly overhanging moves that require some power, I'd rate this a 10.a. Based on how featured the rock is, it's a 9, maybe a 9+. Not like there's a huge difference between either of these ratings, though...
