Easy slab route that keeps your attention due to the disastrous consequences of a fall-think motorcycle road rash, then add cayenne pepper. VERY grippy rock, fun moves, most of the holds on this were *heavily* "comfortized", but I wouldn't go so far as to call it chipped. A decent route and a nice option when the moderates at Kelly's Rock are in the sun.
Starts at the very left end of the leftmost cave at Black and Tan. Climbs out of an alcove up a slab.
Can't get off this one with a 50 meter-bring a 60 meter rope or longer to lower-my ends weren't touching the ground with a 60.

There's a route directly to the right of this that I accidentally traversed over to (not in guide book). Stay off of this, as the bolts get very sparse.
This route was fun. I ended up using more draws than what the book said, but that's probably due to me getting off route. Very hot in the morning even in October.

Shares anchors with Glutton for Punishment which is directly to the left of Redolence so it can't be climbed if someone is on that route.
