Greg just before the crux of Cowboy Curse.

RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Pitch 1: Start as for Cowboy Bebop. Where that route cuts around the arete, continue up and right on the slab through a short thin section until the good crimps and jugs are gained. Follow these to an anchor. 5.10b.
Pitch 2: Head up and left, following the leftmost bolt line on the slab. Relaxing climbing on good varnish holds leads to a ledge and the easing of the slab's angle. Traverse right into Hippie Vest's boltline, and finish on that route. 5.8.

Location 

Rappel with one 60m rope.

Protection 

Bolts to chains.

Another nice warmup line that won't get you as pumped as the routes just to the left of it.

Quite good- clip the first bolt and then come down and climb the arete thats about 5' right of it to make the climb as mellow as possible. A fun and delicate crux in the midst of laid back but thoughtful climbing.
