BETA PHOTO: The start of Texas Tea... crimpy.

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

Description 

This route is about 10a if starting to the right a couple feet and climbing up to the ledge to clip the first bolt; probably 10c/d if going directly under the first bolt. Great route with consistent movement and some thin moves in the middle. I recommend this route!!

Location 

This is the 7th route on the left wall (East Facing) in the upper Black Corridor area and the second route from the end. Begins at a black wall with the first bolt on a small ledge about 9 feet up.

Protection 

The usual 5 bolts will find you at the fixed anchors for your rappel.

Should the direct start variation be put up as separate route? :)
