Routes in Smitty's Caterpillar

Helldorado Days T 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c
If I Could Frame a Fart T 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a

Description

This small formation lies a couple hundred yards uphill and slightly right from Peaches (Children's Crag). It faces east and is distinguishable by a low roof section and a varnished caterpillar feature, 2/3 of the way up the white face.
RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Details

Getting There

Approach as for Soylent Greenjeans. As you get to the mouth of that canyon, you'll notice a massive white, pointy boulder to your right. Hike north, behind the boulder and up the steep hillside. Once you get to a more level area beyond the initial steepness (keeping in mind that you want to be directly above the Children's Crag), you should see the formation you're aiming for. 25 minute approach.
Alternately, you can approach by having first climbed Peaches, Sumo Greatness, etc.
