Climbing in Red Rocks after heavy rain can permanently damage the rock! MORE INFO >>>

Description 

A pleasant route. This could probably be done in a single pitch if you scramble up a bit to establish your initial belay. But two pitches works out well and reduces rope drag.

Climb up and right to a belay stance beneath the right edge of the hanging block. Climb past a small overhang and continue up the varnished face to the big ledge. A bolted rap station is on the right side of this ledge.

Location 

Start at the left base of the Hanging Block Buttress.

Protection

The first pitch is easier than 5.5 and only worthwhile to gain the much more interesting second pitch which is harder than 5.5. Rapping from the top anchors down to the start of Chocolate Sunday is possible with two 60 meter ropes.
