Chad coming up from the last bolt.
This is a long 1 pitch route. Start with Mo' Verde, but after the first bolt head straight up the wall. The Colorado Climbing guidebook lists this route as a 10a, but there is only 1 or 2 10a moves in the route, mostly it is 9 moves the whole way up. The crux is in between the 3rd and 4th bolts when you are pulling on flakes(pull down, not out!).
Descent: Scramble up above the anchors to top out, and then climb down the back side and around. If you have a 70m rope, you can rap it, too.
This is on the Wiggins Wall, Red Rock Canyon Open Space, CO Springs.
9 bolts, 2 bolt anchor (same anchors for The Youth).

It is getting easier as the holds get bigger and tiny crimps become big ones. The upper part is mostly just sustained 5.9 moves...

3rd bolt is ready to blow, which could result in a groundfall.
