The somewhat awkward start to this superb climb.

RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>


One crux down low and one up high with no rests in between.


4th to the left from the crack, shares anchors with Threadfin.


5 bolts to leaver biners

Really fun climb, all the holds are relatively big so this route tests your big muscle groups more than your fingers. A fun campus start leads to a powerful boulder problem at the third bolt. A few easier moves up the flake leads to a final boulder problem to latch a huge jug and the end of the difficulties. Probably on the softer side of 13a, but I think it makes the grade.
