Description

Red Tide tiptoes up the crystal laden slab on the right side of Retardant Rock. Sustained, with a challenging start. Some may want a 0.75/1 camalot for a small runout in the upper half of the climb.

Protection

Bolts.

I didn't go up and right to the chains - the mantle on to that ledge is spicy with a runout fall onto the slab if you blow it. Bring a #1 or #2 to protect this move, otherwise you can go left to another set of chains.
