Start in front of the Bent tree. Climb up the continuous overhangs to the final lip with a fixed chain draw. Pull the lip and finish on easier face climbing above. Most people stick clip the first bolt.

This is a very nice line. The cobblestone rock in the middle of the climb is super solid and provides sloping holds with amazing friction.

As it stands the climbing will feel very soft compared for the number, even by RRG or Red Rocks standards. I will assume the grade will increase with traffic and cleaning -- there is a major feature down low that looks like it yearns to break free, and there is a section of wall before the final roof that is very hollow.

Continuously steep, but with plenty of chances to rest. You can avoid the scary protruding finger with face climbing to the left -- harder than using the finger, but no change to the overall grade (and less chance of ruining your belayer's day).
