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]

climb the bolted face for pitch one.(60') Move directly left 15' from the anchor and head up the face along a small left facing corner past some small overhangs and follow cracks and face holds to the top. A very long pitch that may require moving the belayer left to give the climber enough rope to reach the top.

Location [Suggest Change]

15' east of ATJ

Protection [Suggest Change]

P1 4draws and bolted anchor.
P2 Lots of .25 to 1" and a few up to 3" there are also two bolts. Belay anchor on top of ATJ.

I climbed this in April of '04 thinking it was "Spontaneous Enjoyment"
I have no idea who put in the bolts and/or who climbed it first. If anyone knows pass it on and I will update the information. We did the exact same decent as described in ATJ. I wish Todd's bolts were on top when we did it! I think you can use them now to belay from. I would also recommend a 70m rope. Mar 19, 2007
Late March 2014, also climbed this believing it to be Spontaneous Enjoyment. I think Hadren's guide lists it this way. Great route on an intimidating face. I would call this a heady lead while not being technically difficult. Recommended! Apr 7, 2014
If referencing the Handren Guidebook [2016], this route is labelled as Spontaneous Enjoyment. Sep 10, 2016
