The first crux on Smears for Fears.
|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
One of the sweetest slab routes in red Rocks. Even though this is bolted one should view it as a trad climb as the bolts are fairly far apart and were put in on lead at available stances. The first crux comes about 15 feet up. The next crux is clipping and climbing above the last bolt. Long fall potential here if you skitter off. Once you get your hands on the ledge a quick mantle will slow the heart rate back down and easy 5th class to the anchor.
The obvious bolted slab 100' right of Lebanese Jojo.
Bolts and a couple of small pieces right off the ground.
Moving thru the first small roof. The second crux ...

After back-to-back efforts, the consensus in my group was that this was at least as difficult as Rojo. 11b/c may be lowballing it a bit.
