One of my favorite climbs

  • Be sure to park along the paved road, and NOT on the private driveways!
  • RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>

  • Description 

    Sit start on the left-most jug of the main juggy-cave-thing area. Traverse right on big happy jugs (yay!). At the corner, starting climbing up. Make a big throw from an undercling thingie to a big incut jug out on the arete. Alternately, try a scary feeling-cross off a shallow half-tips pocket. After attaining the incut jug, climb fairly directly up on big holds.

    Location 

    Line is fairly obvious me thinks. Topout is just left of the hard classic stuff (V6-8). Don't fall on any skinny V8 climbers ;).

    Protection 

    Crashpad. Maybe a spotter for the topout and/or the crux move.
