Mateo gettin' a lap on Minute Maid

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

Description 

This is the wide, right-angling crack to the right of Shortcake. Although a crack, it climbs more like a face route, with plentiful face holds.

Protection 

I brought some large cams and didn't use any of them. I would recommend a light rack of stoppers and cams to a #1 (red) BD. Rap from tree atop route.

Soloed this and found it a fairly casual ascent. No way I would have soloed shortcake even though the guidebook lists them at both 5.6.
