This is an excellent pitch on great rock. It goes right up the center of the wall.
The guidebook says "pure finger crack" but, like many Red Rocks climbs, it's pretty varied. Lots of cool moves, with two distinct crux sections.
It's a fairly long pitch but it doesn't go to the top of the cliff; rap from a small tree and fixed wire. We used two 60m ropes. I'm not sure whether one 70m might work.
thin to 2.5", including RPs. There is a fixed wire 40' up, looked bomber.

This is the best pitch of crackclimbing that I have done at RR. Would be a 5-star pitch in Yosemite and Indian Creek. Unfortunately, it is isolated and requires a arduous bushwacking slog to access. Still, for the crack seeker it is well worthwhile.
