|Red Springs Rock Lower Tier
Another route with a crux at the start but this route is pretty fun too! Make sure you get good gear in before the roof moves into the thin crack. There is some slight run-out on the face above but just look for some good horizontal placements. Good Route!!
This fun route is about 20 feet to the right of "Aliens Have Landed" at a right-facing corner under a small overhand. Pull the overhand and follow this crack and face to the top and use standard walk off descent!
Trad rack with an emphasis on some THIN gear; especially some brass nuts and lowe balls. There is NO fixed gear so take some large cams for the anchor on top. There are some fragile holds so use caution and climb soft!
Sheri always makes crux's look easy (sheesh)!
Moving through the crux; FUN moves!
G-ROD moving through the CRUX

Nice climb. The gear was a bit on the small side at times, but it didn't strike me as especially thin. I don't own any lowe balls and didn't put in anything smaller than a #4 bd nut.
Anchored by slinging two stout chickenheads and putting in one piece (can't remember 100%, pink tricam maybe)
