Starts at the right side of the big steep wall of huecos. Make a rising rightward traverse passed a few bolts to gain some good holds as the route heads straight up. There is apparently a new direct start that does not change the grade though I have not done it. As you head straight up the holds thin untill you have a serise of moves on 2 and 3 finger pockets with poor feet ending at a horizontal below a small roof. Work around the roof to the right and up the face more easily to the anchor.
The far right end of the steep wall of pockets, does not really climb on this wall as the route heads right and up to the sweet looking headwall with small pockets.
Bolts and a bolted anchor.

Gaining the arete. The "direct" start, ...

If you could give a route a 6th star at the Red to set it apart and give it some distinction from the other classics, this is the one. There is a reason this is the most viewed route on the Red River Climbing website. It is hyper classic status. Brilliant and powerful opening moves leads to a decent shake, then some easier but fun fluff climbing through the middle to a very cool pocket sequence near the top. From the pocket redpoint crux, slam a jug and finish on hero holds climbing to the top. Worth a trip from anywhere in the world just to do this climb.....

Really, this climb is something incredible. Everything about it screams "perfect". Slightly overhanging orange pocketed face crux at the top is immaculate. Get on this climb.
