Good climb for any beginner.

RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This climb is just to the left of the major deep dihedral closest to the parking area. Climb up a shallow corner only a 5 feet left of Chicken Gumbo (the major dihedral). This route barely feels like a unique route due to its close proximity to its neighbor.

Set up a gear anchor, then the base can be reached by a walk off to the right.

Way easy climb but good for a warm up?? Takes gear really easy and the walk off is easy too, might only be 5.5?

This is an awesome route on which to give someone a first-time leading experience because the climbing is easy and short and you can sew up the route with nuts, cams, and tri-cams. Also, the solid ledge and cracks at the top make it easy, safe and comfortable for a new leader to practice anchor building.

My first trad lead in many years, and a good one to get back into things on - easy, good pro, easy to set up belay at top.

This was our first trad route. Easy route that can be protected with only a set of nuts and slings. Cams are optional in my opinion. Unlimited options for gear placements.

Maybe 5.4, if that. Unlimited protection options.
