Crispy Critters?

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

Description 

This route, along with its neighbor, Captain Crunch, sits just right of Straight Shooter. It is the left hand of the two obvious cracks that are easily visible from the trail. Approach per Straight Shooter and work your way right along the base to the first crack you come to.

Pitch 1: Climb the crack to a large ledge.

Descent: Work left and down on the ledge toward Straight Shooter. On the lip below are two old bolts with chains on them. A single rope rappel gets you back down.

Protection 

Bring a good selection of stoppers and cams to 2".
