This route is just right of Red Rocks Simulator Wall and the "Redemption Arete" under a large, obvious, and very cool archway. There is a 2 bolt anchor.

Protection

Per eli poss: bring a double length sling/cordelette to equalize the anchor.

Cool moves up a big slab, thin edges, slopers, along with trust in your feet will get you to the top. There are some good rest ledges in between bolts and the climbing gets easy at the top. Nov 14, 2016

Thanks for the descriptive tale of your leads up these two cracks. I'm not sure who did the FAs on those but suspect it was Rex. He has done a bunch of things in the canyon and on the Pump House crag in recent years but has not left descriptions on MP. He added several more near the top of the approach trail...one is a face climb and the another that you could miss has bolts up to a harder .11d OW.

If you feel like it and have the time, you could add those two cracks with a rating and description under the tag Unknown. Oct 17, 2016

Anyone know what the two routes are in the alcove just to the right of Bat Master? Climbed a thin (red/green C3s) crack to a pod, then varied 1"-2" before you had to transfer to the offwidth to the right at the top to reach the anchors, which was really freaking hard and scary. Simple description - the alcove right of Bat Master features two cracks with an anchor in the middle of the slab up high. The right crack starts flared then changes to fingers then offwidth at the top, the left crack has several loosish looking blocks at the start, you can get a 0.5 and a tiny nut in before getting your feet on them, then is smaller than 0.3 for about 20' before opening into a pod with the remnants of a dead bush, then varied and easier #1-#2 climbing before the final pod which takes a #3 up high, then commit to switching to the right crack to reach the anchors and try not to puke when you can't reach them.
