This is an excellent moderate line. Climb the obvious open dihedral to the summit belay stance.


6 fixed pitons & a 2-bolt anchor.

A good climb, surprised that a lot of people don't come up that way. It's hard to remember the wall behind you when you are looking at the corner in front of your face.

Lots of fun. Would've been a three-star if there weren't so many loose flakes. Check those holds. Tiny run-out near the top adds a bit of spice.

The best line in the canyon for many reasons. Little traffic. Beware the bear that lives in the small canyon behind you! Interesting moves all face until run out part at top, so if you get bored with slab for the day, climb this for relief.

A single 60m rap is possible in the corner with some downclimbing, but an optional exit is a walk off to the west in the gully, followed by a traverse to the east. Fun route!

Great route! The crux is at about the 4th bolt. Our 60m rope rappel from the anchors only made it down to the 1st bolt, and we had about a 20 ft downclimb from there. Not a bad downclimb, but would have been nice to have a 70m rope. Still, it's definitely one of the best moderate climbs at Red Rocks.

My 70m rope just stretched to the bottom. 0.2 and 0.3 cams were also useful for added protection. Good route.
