DescriptionThis is a fun, easy little trad line that doesn't get done as much as it should. There's no real crux--just moderate climbing throughout.
LocationThis route is almost exactly between Black Rose and Red Slab (hence the name). It is directly underneath the Ska Block.
This actually might be the closest and easiest-to-get-to route in the canyon.
ProtectionSmall nuts and cams (TCUs and C3s would work great). There are camouflaged tan chains on top that you can't see when you're under the route.
Getting on top to toprope the route or its variations is pretty easy. The easiest way is to climb to the base of the Ska Block via easy 4th class scrambling behind (east) of Red Rose. Alternatively, you can scramble up to the right of the route (between this route and Red Slab).
