Description Suggest change

Is there trad in Red Rock Canyon? Oui. C'est vrai.

From the guidebook: on the far left side of the cliff. Layback a fingertip crack up an obvious, right-facing, arching corner until it's possible to exit. Climb directly above the arch to anchors in a shallow scoop.

Other notes: it is #9 in guidebook.

Location Suggest change

This is the furthest south developed route on the slab - see photo for prominent characteristics.

Protection Suggest change

Rack: #0.2, 0.2, 1, 2 Camalots (from guidebook).

Bolted anchors at top.

Eds. the route now sports 2 bolts, approved by the FA and requested by the City of Colorado Springs due to safety concerns voiced by local climbers after cracks appeared in the natural placements.
