Comments: I didn't find the protection difficult. A .5" alien protected the moves up to the crack, then it was good gear to the top. I didn't place anything above a .75" camalot.

The rap definitely needs a 70.

Comments: Agreeing with 'Sir Camsalot', starting far right and almost laybacking the handhold with high feet not only is the only reasonable way to do this, but should keep you away from the ledge...

Comments: We got up here with the Mountain Project app and realized it had no info on route locations. For that, you needed to buy 'the papers' at IME for $10.

Do yourself a favor, if you want to know what you're climbing, go to IME and pick them up and you'll help support the guys developing these areas and spending time and $$$ on bolts.

Comments: Forgot a pair of trad draws at the top of one of the routes last Monday (5/21). If you found them, and are not using them, please give me a call! (970) 231-7425.

Comments: The flake 1/2 way up is loose/cracking and marked with a big chalk X. Climbing around it to the right is harder (and fun). Once it breaks off, a new undercling will probably form...

Comments: Any suggestions on crags at Red Rocks that have big and flat bases? Thinking about a trip with the kids, and want to be sure they are away from stuff they can tumble down. Kids are pretty young, so we keep them close.

Single pitch is best.

Comments: There are no anchors on this route that I could find, unless I was on the wrong route. I saw a hole where a bolt used to be though...

Comments: Every bolt on this route after the first 2 were old, rusty, 1/4" spinners. Not very confidence inspiring, regardless of difficulty.
