somewhere near the crux on this fingery, fun route

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

Description 

The fingery route up the middle of the steep wall. Sustained 5.11 climbing off the deck brings you to a one move crux (easier if you're tall) three bolts up. Easier edging brings you to the anchors.

Protection 

8 bolts to chains.

This route is 12b in Handren's guide and soft compared to other similar routes nearby. I thought it was a very good route though and deserved more credit than the guidebook gave it.

This felt on the harder end of 12a but not quite hard enough to be 12b. I think it would be more difficult for short climbers though so maybe that's where the grade came from. Regardless, it's a really fun route! Three bolts of bouldery moves and crimps to a pretty casual finish.
