Hey everyone.
I accidentally put this post in Southern Utah because I was in Zion, but it belongs here.
I was just in red rocks and did some pitches on epinephrine. I think that I got off route on pitch 2. Before the major chimney, I exited onto the face about 10 feet to the right, just above a large bush. So I did not enter the prominent chimney at all. I then climbed the furthest right major broken flake/crack system to where I eventually worked up diagonally left to the anchors. Has anyone climbed this before? It was fun, I would say 5.8/5.9 crux , and would be a great way to keep it around 5.9 if you wanna try it.
Anyone done it?
Cheers

My most adventurous memory
I'm sure you're not the only one to get off route on this thing. But I'd say that most people stick to the chimneys because that is what the route is most known for. Did you climb the other chimneys? I had the opposite problem as you and found myself squeezed deep inside the chimneys away from the bolts, especially on the last chimney pitch. Matt Kuehl

I went that way the last two times that I climbed the route. Guy H.

What did you think? I thought it was a fun variation. 5.9ish?
