Description

This route is quite fun, and easier than it appears from below. It is a right facing dihedral that starts with a little suspect rock, which improves quickly to high-quality, Red Rocks-esque stone. Bouldery moves, protected by a green Alien on the right side of the crack, lead to a nice rest. The corner then starts to taper into almost nothing, before opening again with some strange moves in a flare to the anchor.

Location

Next route left of Saddle Sores. There is a chain anchor.

Protection

Single set from green Alien to BD #2, with several tips and tiny pieces for the crux

[Hide Comment] Fun. Red and green c3 were the golden crux pieces prior to the anchor. First 10-15 feet was a little difficult to protect. May 14, 2018
