Climbing in Red Rocks after heavy rain can permanently damage the rock! MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This is the good-looking, but short, finger crack on the west face of the crag. The climbing is straightforward up until where the crack pinches off; a couple of hard moves from there will get you to the top.

Location 

This route is located on the west face of the crag. As you're hiking to the crag, you'll see an alcove on the west face with a finger crack on its left side and an offwidth on its right side. This route tackles the finger crack. Once on top, walk off climber's right.

Protection 

Cams from purple TCU to green camalot for the finger crack; a couple of larger pieces (#3 and #4 Camalot) for the belay at the top.
