This is the original line on the cliff. A bold and runout route that travels over much loose rock.


Start to the right of climb 5. Climb up a shallow dihedral passing a pin.Move left onto a ledge, step up and clip the routes lone bolt.Walk off.


One pin and one bolt are the fixed protection on this route. Standard rack should get the rest done.There are no anchors on top of this climb. Hike off to the west(down canyon). This route is listed as r/x in the Ruckman Guide and may be x due to poor rock quality.

Is it just me of is this route fully bolted now?
If so, do not try to continue past the anchors, there is a lone bolt above them with nothing else past it.... had to leave my favorite bailout beaner up there ;)

This is not bolted except for the lone bolt above the anchors for Jen's French Kiss. ( At least I hope no one bolted it.) The 9R Red Rock starts to the right of Jen's and passes a rusty piton, moves left to the lone bolt you mention off of the ledge, and then continues to the top of the wall.
Check out the topo on the main page. It may help.
I believe you were on Jen's French Kiss a fully bolted route
