Description

So called because of a pink paint run down the face, and one of Stoney's best TRs.

A crack on the left side of the pedestal with a move onto the sloping ledge on the right, across this to the depression with the bolt studs (RH Route). Up then step left onto the pink drips - up the middle of the face in a great position, with lots of fun moves to a good rest spot just below the top. Now trend right to a big flake, onto this then worrying stuff to finish.

Very similar to the steep face climbing to be found at Red Rocks (e.g. Tuna and Chips Wall).

Location

From the ledge - at a rock pedestal.

Protection

Top rope. Anchor using the three glue-in bolts, they're close to the edge, you can set up a three medium cam anchor in a crack at the back, secure a static line, tie in to it and then walk with confidence to the edge to set up the anchor. This can also be used to back up (!) the bolt anchor, plus it you rig it correctly you can use it to hold on to until you're over the edge for the rappel.
