  • Be sure to park along the paved road, and NOT on the private driveways!
  • RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>

  • Description 

    This route is referred to at "Hypergide" by the popular guidebook for the area.
    Start on the lowest jugs you can find on the left hand side of the scoop. Make thuggy (and very easy) moves up to a jug in the roof and hit two opposing sidepulls (right hand can be used as a pinch. A high foot helps the next move up and left go static and better holds follow. Keep it together for the moderate but tall topout and move along. A long arm span makes this problem considerably easier. Great boulder problem!


    Couple of pads will protect the crux but don't pitch from the top.

    pretty sure this route is called hyperglide and it's in the new book as v4/5, but still an awesome line
