Description

Upon looking up at Red Bull you begin to question your sanity for trying something that looks this hard. While booting up you wonder whether you'll find any footholds up there on the smooth rock and if those bulbous ripples are actually any good. But, like all routes somebody was able to do it, and after all, we are all human.

Red Bull starts in the huge orange hueco and works up and right to gain the pristine face above. Be careful exiting the hueco because the rock is very fragile and you could pop a foothold or/and handhold. Getting established on the face is a little bouldery (probably V3ish), but pretty manageable. After that its a lot of great mid 5.11 moves with a 5.12- move towards the top.

This is a great route!!! Go do it.

Location

Starts just right of the super classic Schneezal.

Protection

Bolts and bolted anchor

Establishing on the face is significantly harder than "v3". The rest of the description is spot on- fun climbing on surprisingly good holds. The hardware is pretty aged, but held quite a few falls.


UPDATE 4/6/2016
Most of if not all of the hardware is still old. There are two new bolts and one permadraw, however. This allows for a linkup from red bull to the headwall of schneezal - this eliminates the upper 12- section on red bull making this newish line a reported 12c. Sep 6, 2015
