Description

Red Red Whine is the left-most bolted route on the Red Slab. The enjoyable crux is turning the small roof and is what makes the climb. The crux requires balance (or long arms and legs). The rest of the route is slab climbing on positive edges.

Note that this route isn't Impossible Dream (5.10d), which isn't bolted and is a few feet left of Red Red Whine. I think the confusion arises because the Ruckman guide topo for the Red Slab shows Impossible Dream and the topo location for Impossible Dream looks just like Red Red Whine.

Protection

7 bolts to hanger-and-ring anchors. Not a great top rope because of sharp edges, but doable. However, the anchor probably isn't safely accessible from the top without a belay.
