Moving through the crux.

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

Description 

Good moderate usual Black Corridor route with a crux up high to pull the bulge before the anchors, the last bolt is kinda a awkward clip. Good route worth doing.

Location 

This is the very first route on the left wall (East Facing) in the upper section of the Black Corridor and just 5 feet beyond the rock fall/blocks. This and the next two routes (Crude Street Blues & Crude Behavior) are very similar.

Protection 

Route has 6 Bolts to some fixed anchors and your rappel!

a stick clip for the first bolt would be a good idea on this one- spooky start.
