Description

Like any good bottle of wine, this route has a bit of dust from years of aging in a cool dank corner in the basement of the park. Take a moment to notice the pinkish color and cloudy appearance and ponder the bouquet of cedar, froth, and raccoon poop. Pop the cork on this full-bodied route by placing a high left foot and then jumping to the high starting holds. Once established you will notice the rounded texture which sits on the palate as you contemplate committing to a possibly wet sloping hold. The crux of this problem is holding on to possibly wet features which must be used to gain a high foot. This problems has a strong earthy finish which even the amateur palate will take note of.

Location

Walk upstream on the path from the main parking lot until you cross the road, continue on the path down a set of wooden stairs. Head left along the cliff-line until you reach a dead end. Red Whine is the cleanest part of the main rock with a sloping ledge about 12 feet up.
