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

Description 

This route goes up the face and traverses right under a nose shaped roof into the slot on the right side. It is about 15 feet left of Sumo Greatness and about forty feet right of the petroglyph interpretive sign at the base of Children's Crag. Pulling the crux is pretty fun. Build a gear anchor at the top and walk off right. The rock quality is a little flaky on this route.

Protection 

Standard rack to Camalot #4. A second #4 or a #4.5 or a #5 could come in handy at the crux.

There is now an top anchor and two bolts on the thin section just before the anchor that take some of the pucker factor out. BTW, I did not add the bolts and anchor, just used them. First time I did this route in 2011, no bolts or anchor.

Don't add bolts to established routes. This route is in a wilderness area. No bolting allowed.
