Would any locals (or knowledgeable travelers) be so kind as to recommend some good sunny (winter) trad/mixed protection climbs at Red Rocks in the 5.6-5.10 range? While the classics on Black Velvet Canyon are high on my list and I am dreaming of turkeys the north facing aspect of this cliff causes me some concern.

Peace and Blessings,

Sure, there's plenty in that range.

Oak Creek Canyon-
Solar Slab area:
Solar Slab, 5.6
Sunflower, 5.9
Sundog, 5.9
Black Orpheus, 5.10a

Eagle Wall area:
Rainbow Buttress, 5.8
Eagle Dance, 5.10c A0

Juniper Canyon-
Olive Oil, 5.7
Geronimo, 5.7
Myster Z, 5.7

Windy Canyon-
Windy Corner, 5.7
Jubilant Song, 5.8
Hot Fudge Thursday, 5.9
A Song and A Prayer, 5.10a


That about covers that range. There's a few others, but those are the ones i have climbed (or my partner has) and would recommend whole heartedly. I can give beta on most, pm me with questions.

Jubilant song is a stellar route. Did it 4 weeks ago and is one of my favorites next to Epi and Refried Brains. If you do this one, make sure you lead the Roof pitch - bring a camera, I left mine in the car :(

Last year I did Rainbow Buttress and Jubilant Song. The roof pitch was mortifying at 5.5 frictioning my feet on things that the naked eye cannot see under the big orange wave. Absolutely classic times.
