A good climb on Cardinal that is not a crack! Redline is a great granite face pitch that features a short lived but heinous slab move near its end as well as stimulating face climbing and a small roof. An obvious ground up style affair, all bolts clipped from stances. They tend to wander a bit so a couple long slings are useful for the first two bolts. The hard moves are protected very well but some long falls could be had if you pitch off after the difficulties. The rock is great and the moves are stellar!
This climb starts 20 feet to the left of Cucumbers at the obvious large red streak, hence the name. It ends at the ledge and bolted anchor atop the second pitch of the West Face route. Either rappel back to the ledge or continue up the West Face.
