Daryl doing the last few moves. Great Route!

RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This is the best route on the cliff! A variety of holds and moves will lead you up this route. A bit runout to the first bolt as you climb the slabby bottom. Some people attempt to stick clip the first bolt...

Location 

Climb the bolt line to the right of the big hole/hueco on the far left side of the cliff. Start in the hole at the base of the cliff.

Protection 

5 bolts to the chains.

its a good idea to stick clip the first bolt (easily done from the starting ledge), as the slab, while not difficult, is semi-insecure.

great route overall, some of the most fun i've had on rock in awhile!

I would agree that it will be good to stick clip the first bolt. It is easy slab, but if you are short like me (5'3), it is definitely committing to clip the first bolt.

Last bolt to chains is loose. It has a wiggle of about 1/4 inch. watch your send due to the fact that this bolt seemed like the crux move. Otherwise great climb with varied movement.

Thanks to the LVCLC and a donation from the ASCA the top three protection bolts and the anchor bolts have been replaced with 6 1/2" FIXE glue ins and SS quicklinks and SS rappel carabiners for the anchor.

The bottom two pro bolts were previously replaced with 1/2" SS 5 piece bolts.

If you enjoy safe routes please donate to the ASCA

After a nice fall by my partner the small flake one encounters to get up to the frist bolt has gotten smaller. The route is no more difficult as the flake is only used for balance.
