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

Description 

A gymnastic and bouldery route up the steep face to the right of Dirty Little Girl. The pockets down low tempt you into thinking this one might not be too bad- and it isn't, assuming you can sort the beta quickly and efficiently.

I would recommend pre-hanging the first two draws and stick-clipping the first on this one to keep your ankles intact if you biff the opening boulder problem. Don't worry- it's not the crux!

Location 

Immediately right of Dirty Little Girl. A few pockets on a smoothish face with bolts is route route. Can easily be TR'd after climbing DLG.

Protection 

6 bolts to shuts
