Description

This route is a pretty nice intro to Red Wing gear climbs. It's easy but getting slicker by the season from all the traffic, esp. since the start is shared by Kelly's Arete to the left. Anyway, the climb is okay, but a tiny bit sketchy for the first 10 feet due to slickness factor. Protects easily. Easy after the ledge.

Protection

#3 cam or similar hex in the wide crack down low and then a smaller one near the ledge. Smaller Camalot or medium nuts on the upper section. Protects well and the rock is good. You can see the whole route from the base and can figure out what to bring. Chains/biners at the top for anchor. Use your own biners to toprope and replace any biners at the top that look bad! The old ones will look rad on your backpack.
