Crispy Critters? Just around to the right of Lazy...
|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
This route, along with its neighbor, Captain Crunch, sits just right of Straight Shooter. It is the left hand of the two obvious cracks that are easily visible from the trail. Approach per Straight Shooter and work your way right along the base to the first crack you come to.
Pitch 1: Climb the crack to a large ledge.
Descent: Work left and down on the ledge toward Straight Shooter. On the lip below are two old bolts with chains on them. A single rope rappel gets you back down.
Bring a good selection of stoppers and cams to 2".

Handren has the description correct, but the location wrong -- it's the left of the two cracks on the SE face of the big block, around right from the Lazy Fireman, an obvious slanting thin crack through black varnish. Mostly thin cams and small wires, could use gear up to 2". Rap from the slung summit block; could use another cordelette for redundancy.
