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


Look for a wide crack with a bulge at the top. You can awkwardly climb the wide crack or climb around it on the left on overhung jugs. This will lead to a ledge. From the ledge, connect seams, face features, bolts and a fixed pin. The crux requires delicate face technique but is well protected.
Don't miss the marginal 3 inch cam that will be your last pro before 5.9 and easier moves that lead to the top.


On the far right side of Childrens Crag a well-defined trail leads directly to the start of this climb. If you run into the wooden fence that blocks the area off because of the petroglyphs, turn around and go a bit further right. Stay out of the petroglyph area!
When you get to the wall, look for a steep, awkward wide crack with a bulge.


Couple bolts + single rack to 3"
