BETA PHOTO: Cold September Corner
Start in the corner to the right of the low roof which forms a cave in the middle of Sunnyside Crags. Climb the corner crack up through a couple roofs to a anchor under another big roof. This route is very intimidating for the grade, but the moves are there and are very enjoyable.
Standard rack to #3 Camalot
The roofs, oh the roofs, great protection.

This is such a great route. The roof looks totally improbable but when climbing it, the moves are all there and it's well protected with #4 and #3.5 Camalots. I've done a second pitch to this route, which wasn't as stellar but fun nonetheless. There is no fixed anchor for pitch 2 but plenty of gear placements. We walked left, up canyon, for quite some ways until we found a rappel anchor in a waterstreak. The anchor was a natural thread with slings and rings and we rapped with two ropes.

A fun, interesting route! You won't experience boredom on it, that's for sure! The roof move was pure fun after figuring out how to protect it. The only thing I didn't care that much for on the climb was the awkward stance and move over to the uncomfortable hanging belay, but who said climbing's all pleasure and no pain?

One of the most classic pitches I have done at Red Rocks. A cool route with improbably easy moves.

Probably the best moderate at this crag. Good protection and fun moves.

A good route: it looks harder than it is.

Super fun. The roof was cool.. #4 and #3.5 camalot sewed it up, and I ended up chimneying across facing left. Good times! 60m rope just makes it.

A great route for people who are newer to roofs. The roof-corner is high enough to make for a bit of psych-out factor; but when you arrive there it's possible to actually "sit," with legs stemming out to either a Coach legroom or Business Class legroom, giving one time to take some deep breaths and gather one's self for the exposure move to clear the corner. With the length of my legs, i chose Business Class, although on an airplane they would probably kick me out of that section.

I think its longer than 60 Ft. Great route and one of the funnest pitches I have done in RR. And to have done it with Karen just made it that more special! Roofs, good jams, stemming, face climbing etc... its all there in one long pitch! Cool cave to hang out in at the belay too. The fixed #3 cam in the first roof is there for good, its trashed anyways but if you see it you know your on the correct route.

Probably the best single pitch of 5.8 in the park- or damn close to it. I seriously can't believe I climbed here for nearly a decade before getting on this thing. So classic!
Bring a #4 for the roof to supplement the fixed piece at the lip and some extra smallish stuff (to #0.75 camalot) for gear.
A single 60m will get you off it, but just barely- I'd say its probably exactly 100'.

Fun climb! As intimidating as the climb appears, the holds are all solid and in the right spot, you just gotta find them! The fixed cam that has been mentioned is gone. Definitely bring a #4 for the roof. There is a piton to the right once you get up that seems pretty solid (not much experience with those). Definitely a climb you gotta do if you are in the area.
