Description 

This route should get more traffic. It's pretty fun. From the Big Roof, walk back left along the face, avoiding the poison ivy. This is the middle of 3 lines on a big flake. Stay on the flake for full value and fun. Try for the onsight!

Protection 

4 bolts + bolt anchor. Please use your own gear for top rope. Please bring an extra biner and if the ones up top look bad or don't easily clip or shut, please replace it. It's good karma.

How it got its name:


"On a final note, the name “Quickdraw moves to Hollywood” has a story like most of the route names I come up with. Back when I climbed at RW a lot and was helping with development I had a good friend – Kelly Gorder. We hung out and climbed a lot together. He put quite a few routes up at RW. New kids, and Kelly’s arête are a couple of them. Anyhow he had a dog named Quickdraw. Like a lot of dogs Quickdraw was a lover. Happy just to know you. Well Kelly and his family and Quickdraw moved to the Sacramento area to train race horses. I named the route in their honor."

This is one of my favorite "short" routes at Red Wing, and may actually be one of my favorite routes overall at RW. If you like really technical moves, and a lot of tricky weight shifts into reachy pockets and crimps, this is the route to do! I was surprised how much I ended up enjoying this route. The crux is unbelievable, and can definitely be done with a few different creative approaches. I cannot recommend this route enough!
