Description

Climb the right side of a large block by doing short and well protected layback move (5.7). After surmounting block, leave a small ledge and climb arete past 5 bolts (5.7-). There is great exposure if you stay left and on the arete.

Location

This route is just left of the "Beehive Buttress" and right of "Arm and Hammer" and the Red Rocks Simulator Wall.

Protection

Gear: one 3.5" (#3 Camalot) is needed for the start, then 5 QDs to the 2 bolt anchor on top.

The line of bolts can also be gained by climbing up a steep, tight hand crack to the south if the standard start is north. Can't quite remember the direction that stretch runs. It is best approached by getting to Arm & Hammer then walking a short distance climbers right to the start. There was a stuck #1 B.D. cam up high in the crack. I would say it clocked in at 5.10+ and may have garnered a PG-13 or R rating making the crux moves onto the ledge before the bolts. Oct 18, 2014

Great face climbing on railer edges. Bring a mid to small cam for the opening pillar moves. Jul 10, 2016
