Perhaps the finest sport climb in Red Rocks. Two bolts of 5.9 jugginess lead to the first of many powerful boulder problems. Enjoy the variety (and the mandetory all points off dyno) and grimace through the crimpers on this beautiful classic!
Deepest route on the left side of the corridor, next to Sunsplash (5.13b).
Chain draws to chains.

I agree with the above, this climb is worldclass. If you ever work a 13b, let it be this one.

I agree with ya Ben. I worked this thing one day and hung like 3 times my first go. This season I will work the crap out of it. WORLDCLASS!!!!!

A classic 13! A fun start with very cool rock features. For me there were 2 cruxes. One near the beginning with a pinky jam (I believe around the 4th bolt) and the last was the dyno (make sure to catch the edge).

definitely world class, one of the hardest moves is right at the beginning with a one finger crack that hurts like hell! great place to take pics

When does this beast get sun?

It gets almost no sun. Maybe 30 minutes when the sun is directly above it.

One of my favorite routes ever, although the crux is really awkward and hurts a little bit. Worth it though.
