Just before the crux on Generations.

RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This is an old project, #7 in the Handren book. Begins with some big moves between good, albeit sandy ledges (crag theme). A few really cool dimples, and a gym like left hand jug lead you to the first crux. Move straight right with a right knee smear on some right facing edges. From this stance work your left hand onto a heinous sloper above the lip and pounce up and right to a big flat ledge. Finish out the bullet slab.

A really fun, punchy little route. I filled in a drilled 2 finger pocket next to the sloper in the crux.

The rock quality after the first bolt or so is bomber. A worthwhile route along with several of the other rigs at this secluded shady crag.

Hey Jon that's rad your filled in the drilled pocket. Thanks for your contributions to MP lately in the area and for having the vision to get these old projects done. Respect.
