Access Issue: RAIN AND WET ROCK: The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Details
Access Issue: Be sure to park along the paved road, and NOT on the private driveways! Details


Classic moves on steep & solid stone.

Start on the huge jug at the bottom of the roof on the uphill side of the boulder. Move out to the double pockets and then fire up through positive crimps to an easy topout.

Some good deadpoint skills come in handy in the 2nd half of the problem, and the crux may feel significantly more difficult for shorter people due to a lack of positive footholds.


Uphill side of the Monkeybar boulder.


One crashpad.

This is me on MBD. Kinda flailed on the finishing jugs, but I'll still take the send: Nov 22, 2011

As described, this is the V8 standard version. The V9 starts differently to the right (on the V6 start?) and then moves into the pockets. Dec 31, 2012

Via the SNB guide the v9 variation has the same start as MBD but at the double pocket you head left to a small crimp and from there connect into monkey bar v2...but I'm sure there many other variations. Dec 18, 2013
