Comments: A new hanger was added a bit lower by Bob a few weeks ago to take some of the bite out of that high first one.

Comments: That first bolt is still a ways up. I showed it some stick clip love. I would guess it's about 15-17' up to the first. It's doable on the lead, but stick clipping that first one sure does make you feel better about it.

Comments: New hangers and anchors as of 2 weeks ago. There is a block near the top, a bit right and below the anchor, that is coming a bit loose. Be careful of it.

Comments: Went to climb this today. Got to the top of P1 before the wind was getting a touch too strong for our liking, so we called it good and rapped off. Didn't get a good look at the rest of the route, but counted 5 or 6 chopped bolts on P1. It is completely trad with the exception of the bent rebar and piton at the top of P1 for an anchor. Hopefully, I will get the opportunity to go back soon and get 'er done.

Comments: One of my favorites in Red Rocks. I had been eyeing this one for a while. I think 8- is a little underrated, but it is definitely not a 10 grade climb. Stuck my finger in a cactus that was growing under the undercling. Tried to clean some of that debris out. Great climb, though.

Comments: I called Front Range last week and was informed that someone would be out there to dress it up. Apparently they have a contract to maintain the routes. Thank you Front Range for helping to keep us safe out there.

Comments: Was climbing "The Mad Scientist" 2 days ago and noticed the top anchors seem a bit wiggly and loose. Didn't have a wrench or epoxy with me. Be careful out there.
