Description

The year was 1996. Slick Willie was president. The Macarena was sweeping the nation. The internet was a torture device. And the U.S. sport climbing scene was still in it’s wild and rebellious adolescence. After a six month road trip of some the best sport crags in the nation at that time, Seth and I came back to Wisconsin with a whole new perspective on life. A Red Recollection was the first line we established here for obvious reasons, and it is named after the Red River Gorge, which I thought had the best sport climbing I'd ever seen.

The line climbs the center of the wall up a unique "tufaesque" layback feature for thirty feet with awesome non technical stemming. The crux seems to come all too soon and involves a thought provoking bulge, which is passed on the left. Continue up to your choice of low, or high anchor.

Location

Center line on the wall. Starts off of an awesome flat boulder.

Protection

Sport Anchor over the bulge for original pitch, or continue to the second set if you wish which adds climbing, but nothing to the grade per se. Cleaning the pitch on TR is probably the way to go.
