Comments: We recently climbed this route, having arrived at the base of the Angel Food Wall to find 3-4 parties on all the other routes. We read the minimal beta in the guidebook and set off for a "quick" climb so we could do one of the other routes.

It did not end up being quick, but it was a definitely a classic Red Rocks adventure. You will know you are on the right route when you head up the sandy hole in the dark chimney. We did not find there to be that much poop, although it had just stormed rece... more >>

Comments: I was not psyched with the fit of .75 Camalots, I would have been much happier with more black metolius or #2 Friends for the upper headwall.

Comments: I actually thought the crux was the very last bit, getting up to the top ledge. Maybe it was just more mental, but I thought it was harder and more committing than the "crux" in the middle of the route.

Comments: I absolutely recommend this route for any other ladies out there with small fingers who are comfortable with small gear. This was a great technical route! Also didn't find it to be PG13 or R. Just bring the small cams (aliens, C3s were good) and the RPs.

Comments: You can also reach the trailhead by driving west/north on the PCH from Santa Monica and turning right on Yerba Buena road (at Neptune's Net restaurant) and following that up to the trailhead.

Comments: Climbed this route for the first time recently. I thought it was great! The moves were all interesting and it protected very well. It was definitely 5.9, especially by J-Tree standards and compared to the 10b's I have lead in J-Tree. The traverse is also not that bad if you've lead some of J-Trees sportier "bolted" routes. Its really not that far...
