The squiggly crack that splits the arete. Get read...

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

Description 

This route ascends the obvious finger crack about five feet to the left of the bolted sport route, and about 20 feet to the left of Red Zinger. Supposedly the route goes at 5.12b, but It felt much harder than that to me (probably my lack of overhanging finger crack with no feet technique). The crux is encountered about 3/4 of the way up when the crack kicks back a few degrees beyond vertical, and the feet run out. After the crux, traverse right to the anchors of the bolted sport route.

Location 

Just left of the Feather, the bolted sport route that is just left of Red Zinger.

Protection 

Finger sized pieces.
