Ryan takes a run on Red Hot


Technical crux down low but lots of devious stuff above.


Far right route of those that start off the Breeze ledge.

Really fun route.

EDIT: this comment was meant for The Breeze.

Hey Brax, do you think this climb is better than Delerious, The Breeze or Planet Eater? I think it is little short and the crux is not sustained to give it three stars but it is fun. It is a quick tick on the 5.12 list. Congrats if you got the redpoint on it!

Due to my incompetence, I confused this one with The Breeze. You're right, though. The Breeze & Delirious are much better climbs.

Fun route. Short crux lower down and then a fun section trough a seam. The loose blocks at the top of this climb and Fireball are of the size that might make one throw up in their mouth if you considered them being pulled off.

Also, this climb has only hangers at the top which make cleaning a little difficult. Will try to get some chains up there soon.
