DescriptionThe year was 1996. BIll Clinton was president, the Macarena was sweeping the nation, the internet was a savage tool, and the U.S. sport climbing scene was still in its adolescence. After a six month road trip of some the best sport crags in the nation at the 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 30" 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.
