Description 

If you're heading up to the Mickey Mouse Wall looking to clip bolts, but you redpoint a full four number grades below Vogue, head up to the east ridge for a little R.N.R.

Begin at the rightmost line of bolts on the Garden of Stone. Climb up fun huecos to a bolt, continue straight up through some thin face between the second and third bolt. Bust out left and up on big huecos and holes past two more bolts and finish at a two bolt anchor.

Two stars: fun climbing, good rock, scenic location but a bit short and a little contrived.

Steep and pumpy for 5.9+, but it is a good route.

Apparently R.N.R. stands for Rednecks in Rome. The FA may have been done by Alvino Pon. In the Rossiter Eldo guide, Rossiter says that the info for this area came from Alvino via an article in Rock and Ice #54. Alvino is responsible for many climbs in St Vrain Canyon.
