This felt like the crux to me.

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

Description 

Slabby start to a ledge and a bulge just below the anchor.

Location 

About 30 ft left of 'Man's Best Friend', but starts up on the 2nd ledge. To get there, walk left up the gully and climb the short wall on your right to a ledge. From there, continue left and climb another short wall on your right. You'll be below and to the left of the first belay station for 'Man's Best Friend'.

Protection 

8 bolts with 2 bolts and chains for an anchor.

Fun route. The bolts all felt good but I remember there being a big slab towards the top anchor that felt a little on the loose side with potential for an accident so watch out for it. Overall good route, we belayed from a different position than is listed on the beta but it all worked out.

Nice route. A bit harder than Man's Best Friend, but still soft. Can easily be toproped with a 60m rope from the top of MBF, using the Unknown anchor and a bolt or two as directionals.
