Climbing in Red Rocks after heavy rain can permanently damage the rock! MORE INFO >>>


Start below the right side of the big roof.

1. Easy rock leads up to a corner.

2. Follow the right-facing dihedral to a block beneath the roof.

3. Climb left, passing a bolt, to the left end of the roof.

Downclimb the gully to the left.

We enjoyed this route very much, finding it another worthy climb on this crag. The bolt is an old buttonhead but there's good gear available under the roof.

The second pitch, exremely enjoyable climbing, is easier than 5.8.
There is a fun variation which goes right of the big roof. Start towards the roof and surmount the left edge of the bulge/roof which blocks access to the wide crack leading to the base of the big ceiling. At the base of the wide crack angle right and up across a fun face, with edges and flakes, that will lead to the gully/chimney right of the roof. Climb a short hand crack and a chimney to the top. A little brushy, but good climbing. This variation might be minimal 5.8.
On our recent climb we cleaned some brush at the start of the first pitch, which should make for a better experience. No oak leaves in your shirt for the rest of the day.
