Red Hot Space Suit is a continuous, technical, face route. It starts out much less than vertical, then slowly goes to vertical. Most climbers will find the crux at the bulge near the top.


The line of bolts just left of Red Planet.


11 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor with chains.

This is indeed a great line. Really fun moves. Guidebook says 12b, but I found that soft (particularly if you get the no hands rest).

Great technical line! There are probably no 12b moves, but you will have to fight for the on-sight. The upper crux is straight forward once you figure it out, but the clock is ticking.

(RP=12a and OS=12b)

Fun, fun, fun. Soft for the grade, but it packs a mental/physical punch on the onsight. Didn't think I'd get that pumped on such a flat route.

A really great line. Technical and interesting almost the whole way. Get on it.

Unbelievably fun route! Felt like there was a deceptively tricky bit at the 4th bolt. Milk the no-hands rest at the 5th bolt, then get into the business up higher.

Worth doing. 5.11c feels about right. Maybe d. Onsight doesn't make much of a difference, you're on your feet most of the route. Couple holds might be hard to find if nobody's climbed on it recently.
