Pre-Crux climbing on Sunsplash.

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


I recently watched some accomplished climbers flailing on this route. It is know as one of the testpieces for Red Rocks... unfortunately I don't climb 13s! =) It is considered a classic line if you are capable of pulling the moves off the drilled pockets.


This is the second route from the far end of the corridor on the West side. It is the obvious line on the left.


Several draws are hanging for your convenience; Please leave them there...

Super fun climb that will make your fingers scream! Still trying to make it to the 6th bolt but a problem that I look forward to working on in the future. Bolt 2-3 was very hard, 3-4 a fun committing move, 4-5 super easy to clip off the jug, 5-6 has positive two finger pockets with bad feet (beta intensive).

Despite being shamelessly manufactured, this route is SO good. Every sequence is engaging and sequential with very little "fluff" from start to finish. Consider taping the pulleys for the two-finger pockets through the crux!

More difficult than Monster Skank from the ground, but not as difficult overall. Fun route (even though the pockets were obviously drilled).
