Slabby at the top--GREAT!...

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


Another warm-up; Cruxy (10A) start to 5.9 terrain on good holds. Pretty fun climibng.


10 feet left of Skid Mark, 10 Feet Right of Blame It on My A.D.D.

Route name irony, methinks. Thanks for the new routes, amigo. Hope to get a chance to check em out one of these days. Still haven't been on Mike's Grindhouse stuff yet; kinda on a crack jag. If the wrist is good we should do Empire soon, you'll like it.

And smoking them, but that's why we love ya! Hit me up about Empire anytime, I might even put up a Calico route or three with ya if ya redpoint the splitter and tell me how soft my grade is :)

And the real Killis drinks baby blood and Roosts at night on permadraws. Or some such nonsense. IF he/she exists...

This was a fun climb. A little slab with a fun surprise at the top. I'm not a strong climber and didn't feel this was 10a compared to the 10a's in the area. I would rate it 9+

both anchor bolts are loose to the point this climb is NOT safe to rappel or lower off. I topped out and traversed to skid mark to lower. Great climb but needs new anchors.

Anchors replaced with 1/2" x 4.5" stainless Powers. Bolts and hangers courtesy of ASCA. I also added Mussy hooks. The anchor is now a couple feet lower to prevent the rope rub issue caused by the old location.

Good route 2.5 stars. There's a fun sit start dyno to the normal starting hold that's about V3 imo.
