Send Me On My Way

Private Property MORE INFO >>>


Feels easier than 5.9, easy clipping stances, nice jugs. Very good climb.


Located at the opposite end as the entrance to Bruise Brothers wall. It is where Rat Stew and the other sport climbs are.


nine bolts.

I'm not sure if this anything serious to worry about, but when I reached the anchors for Send Me on My Way, I did notice that there are some hairline fractures on the anchor block in close proximity to the anchor bolts. I wish I would have had my phone with me to take a picture, but I left it on the ground. I am not too familiar with the rock at Red, so maybe somebody else can take a look at it who knows the rock type better.

A lot of giant loose plates, pull down not out it would be bad news for your belayer to rip one of them down.

Careful getting to the first bolt if you dont stick clip. I watched a number of people stuggle in fear to get to what looks like an easy first bolt.

Very broken climbing with many loose blocks and dirty ledges. Fun movement, but the rock quality took away from it. I will avoid in the future.

Loved the climb (my second ever 5.9 lead). Yes, some plates were loose, but they were Xed with chalk, and there were always plenty of other good holds. Fantastic view from the top if you get up there while the sun is setting.

Not understanding the loose rock issues...? There are a few blocks marked with an X, but it is a pretty awesome beginner route. The only 5.9 part of it might be the crack at the start, but that section would probably be a 5.6 with trad ratings in the red.

Dont worry about the loose blocks, none of them are gonna fall anytime soon...

super fun movement, however as stated by the entire population of the known world, there are a lot of loose holds on this. Definitely a great route to teach people what an "x" stands for.
