Just right of the tree step off the ramp and shoot up the steepest section on thin holds. A brief pause in the center to contemplate the rounded crack systems above may get you to the chains. Tough!

This route was conceived of by Pat Mees and perhaps Bobby Model had a hand in the intial recon. A top rope was set up but no fixed protection was installed. During the Summer of 1994, Richard Plummer lived in Cody and stayed busy with his drill adding a handful of routes. I talked him into equipping this line as I knew it would be the hardest thing in town and was just too tempting to let it sit. He installed the anchors and most of the bolts, I helped down low with the first few bolts but placed them in hard to clip places so they had to be moved. Long story short, many tried and failed until Dan Miller moved to town in 1998, he nabbed the FA shortly thereafter in 1999.


As you enter the Island you'll come to an old paved parking area. Look to the right to see a feature shaped like an arrowhead pointing down. Redhead is the steeper longer route on the left that climbs intially above a tree.


10 clips, chain anchor
