Sheri nearing the thin section up high, her first ...


Just to the left of the Mother's Day corner, follow a line of bolts up to the anchors.

My wife and I both climbed this route and while most of the route would lie in the 5.9 range, we both felt the top of the route had two distinct sections of 5.10a climbing on thin moves. The route is very well protected so no worries going for it, have fun!! Also known as Todd's a God in the Guidebook.

I agree that the top face climbing is a tad more difficult than the 5.9 rating implies. I would give it a 10a though nicely bolted.

Sweet route at 5.10a. Well worth the walk up, bring some gear for mother's day 10 feet right and make an evening of it. Thinnnnnn....

As mentioned, this is "Todd's a God" in the Handren guide.
Great edging; the moves slowly become more difficult as you climb to the crux moves at the top, which are definitely harder than 5.9.

great crimpy climb. Last 2-3 bolts before the anchor is 5.10+ climbing. Super thin.

I would put this climb 5.10(-) maybe at the very most. The crux is thin, but some good foot work will get you though. Sorry Mauzy, but I disagree bro.

This was one of the first routes I did in Red Rock. It sent me off thinking the RR grade was hard. Definitely thin for 5.9 but a super good pitch.
