Be careful as the rope can get caught up in the sharp edges of this cliff.

This is a really fun route with some nice exposure. I'm not sure about the difficulty as compared to Red Rock as a whole, but this was definitely easier than Frailty Thy Name Is Sandstone (5.7) to the left, so I'm putting a 5.6 on this.
