Millepede

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 a great little pitch. Located 40 feet right of Arrow Place, begin in a left-facing corner and climb up passing two bolts (a very loose flake lies between them - belayer beware). Continue up the corner until it is possible to step right into an attractive arching undercling flake. The slab under this flake has good footholds and the flake itself accepts finger-sized gear. At it's end, step up to an anchor.

Protection 

Single set from tips to #2 Camalot.

We started up this, but ended up on a variation where you stay left at the mini-roof. We rapped off this anchor. I saw a couple more bolts continuing up the crack above then into the broken varnish further up. I think we concluded this left version may be a touch stiffer than 10a.

gear above the two bolts do exist, but some small to tiny in soft sandstone, sometimes after steep committing sequences. no prob if solid at the grade, but ... , just, be careful. sweet finger crack up the finishing ramp with great feet, the nice reward
