Red Hot Chilli Pepper

A rarity in the Red, being a climb with a low angle crux, with small holds. Climb up pockets and horizontals past a few bolts and gear placements (small-med cams or tricams) and get into the business, a low angled slab with small holds. Continue to the shuts and rap off.
Lowering off and TR-ing are less advisable on this route, since the angle of the rock seems to create a twist in the rope as it goes.
This climb ascends the low-angle wall (relatively low, anyway) just left of headstone surfer and just right of an arete.
A set of draws and a few tricams or cams for the horizontals between the bottom bolts.

The guidebook gives an R rating... if you only bring a rack of draws. Treat the first 25 feet as a mixed route, and it's as G rated as they get.
