The Red Rocks Overhang is a fun short climb on the south wall of Red Rocks. It is straight ahead of you behind a tree as you pass up through the gap in the Red Rocks. Climb up the face using smaller blocky holds. When you reach the overhang reach up above and choose the most positive of the small horizontal cracks to pass over the overhang.Once you get above the overhang you've only got a few easier moves to the top.

I like this route but I am not sure it is a five star route. It is worth doing.
