Access Issue: Located in a National Forest Fee Area Details


Translated as Red Cloud, this is a hard, continuous, and sustained line up pockets and shallow edges. Difficult to read, the short and sweet Red Cloud will keep your mind and body busy. Thin and tricky to start, Makhpiya-Luta climbs up and slightly left over mis-leading holds and thin edges to a small, troublesome bulge. Pass this and exit on more comfortable ground. Climb to the left and follow the bolt line for the full value, climbing right of the bolts makes this line significantly easier.


Makhpiya-Luta is the first route you encounter when approaching the Chief Wall. Its the far most right climb and the only route with so few bolts.


Draws for three or four bolts and an anchor.
