the view from the climb is absolutely beautiful!

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

Description 

Originally aided (C1) out the roof using thin gear to rap anchors. This roof has repelled some strong climbers' free attempts (most notoriously those of Hidetaka Suzuki, who put up a 13d seam at Jtree on gear). Ultimately climbed free by tom Moulin.

Location 

Obvious crack through the roof

Protection 

All clean gear. NO PINS!

This route was rumored to have been freed by Tom Moulin in 07 but I haven't spoken to him about it. Any info for potential repeaters/info on Tom's send would be appreciated.

I haven't sent this route yet, but i can say the route is doable for shorter people. I'm about 5'0 and I've done all the moves but one, but my height does make it a little bit harder. there is a good foot before moving into the campus section that is a little bit reachy making my body almost fully extended before lowering into the campus, which makes the swing a little rough to control. Thats about as far as I'll go with beta. Other than that, the route is amazing! such a great line! i hope it sees more climbers soon!
