1) The first two pitches of Epinephrine are the perfect spot for learning multipitch. I would take everyone there Sunday and just take turns doing those two pitches!

This is horrible advise, fucking horrible advise. And if yer trying to be funny you really should learn to put a bunch of smily faces on it.

For the OP Epinephrine is one of the most popular routes in Red Rocks and is a cluster fuck.

Places that would be worth while for groups is Willow Springs. https://www.mountainproject.com/area/105731968/willow-spring

Another is School Yard : https://www.mountainproject.com/area/106355158/the-schoolyard

Angel Food Wall has bunch of multiple pitch routes that might be workable: https://www.mountainproject.com/area/105732102/angel-food-wall


Oh, and Morgantown - a drinking town with a football problem.

I’m just wondering if you have read through all the stickies, and if you have a copy of the most recent guidebook?

There are several portions of olive oil that have poorly-protected traverses. The climbing isn’t hard, but a falling second would be bad.

Linking the 2nd and 3rd pitches is fun, but i ran out of gear with a double set of cams, a set of nuts, and a dozen shoulder-length slings. Communication was very difficult as well. I did not recognize the end of the second pitch when I encountered it, but my plan had been to link those two pitches anyway.

The final pitch features just about every technique a 5.7 leader should know, so if your second is not well rounded, they’ll probably have a bad time.

Heads up, OP, that the weekend of the 17th/18th is the Rendezvous,  and some of the areas you may want to visit might already have clinics converging on them. The fringe is rarely visited and it a great spot for a large group. Romper Room might also be a good choice. If it rains I suggest visiting one of our gyms or Gun Club for limestone sport.

#3: Why not just set up shop at Birdland? No one goes up there expecting not to wait in line, anyway, so it shouldn't ruin anybody else's day more than usual. That's where I often take people who are new to RR and/or new to me, because of the low commitment factor.

If you want a very moderate line, of moderate length, and want to reduce your impact on other parties, try Rising Moons in First Creek Canyon. You don't have to pay to get in, and your leaders won't have to struggle much with protection, because there isn't much.

...3rd pitch is a gem

Thanks for all the responses thus far. 

For the record, epinephrine is on my personal to-do list and very far from any option for our group.

Thanks Allen. I'll check those out!!

Diving into sticky threads...
