Comments: Yeah. My bad, Ben. The anchors are off to the right of the tree.

Comments: Nice intro to the climbing and rock in the area. Some fun moves...especially the reach up left around the overlap. The hold is nice but it is fairly blind to start with. Bolts are well placed. Too bad this climb isn't longer. Anchors are a little hidden off to the left of the tree and detached red block.

Comments: Fun variety of moves. Slabby down low then a short crack section before the crux. Crux moves are a bit tricky to figure out. Bolts are all exactly where they need to be except the anchors are spaced too far apart. Felt pretty stiff for 9+.

Comments: Climbed it 3/6/10 and the guy before us busted off the crimper for the left hand at the crux. It is now of little use other than perhaps balance. So the crux may be back in the 10a range. Still very fun couple of moves.

Comments: Definitely lives up to the hype. We really enjoyed this as our intro to Red Rocks. Feb. 23rd & 50 degrees with 5 parties on the route but it really wasn't too bad as most of the belays are spacious and nobody was climbing slowly. Would recommend combining 1&2 pitches, nice long 180ft pitch with abundant pro.

We mistakenly climbed a variation to pitch 4. This felt a couple # grades harder than 5.6! We went completely left of the roof. Climbed straight up to far left edge. Passing roof fel... more >>

Comments: Very quality climb. Did this Jan. 16 in 48 degree temps after having climbed it 10+ years ago. Better than I remebered it being. The pro is solid, albeit spaced a bit in spots. There is a Nut fixed in the crack about 1/2 way up the crux at the top. Inspected it briefly on lead and the wires looked in good condition and didn't seem to be going anywhere. Just clipped it and fired for the jug. I agree that fiddling with pro in the crux might make this more spicy than necessary. There are mul... more >>
