Access Issue: RAIN AND WET ROCK: The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Details

Description [Suggest Change]

A single long pitch to climb the cliff on sparse or interesting gear. A 60M rope MIGHT make the top, but I did it with a 70M and believe it would be a close call. As well, the bottom of the route is hard and would be a terrible place for a climber to fall simul-climbing.
Climb from the base of Gonzo Dogs, going up and right past some short slashes/seams/cracks to access the bottom of several bolts. Continue up these and to the face above to finish on easier, but runout climbing. Belay up top from trad gear.

Location [Suggest Change]

This is the right-most of the slab routes on the dome and climbs from the base of Gonzo Dogs, to the right to access a different set of bolts and gear. This is just left of the super-steep "Fear and Loathing II"

Protection [Suggest Change]

A rack of thinner gear, from small nuts to tcu's plus a few draws for the bolts. The route will be heady.
