3 out of 5 stars Sundog

Good visit at Red Rocks with Zach and Janette. Some hazardous rock fall on the 2nd double rope rap....did in a helmet and a rope....and got a little bloody...a lot of "thank god for helmets" going around....tread lightly...this is not granite or even limestone. Those of us who spend time in the Canadian Rockies are used to tip-toeing around. Should be no different at Red Rocks. Cheers.

4 out of 5 stars fun day out

climbed this again for the first time in years and i'm sticking to my guns on the crux ratings- the crux pitch is no harder than 5.9 and the final wide section is 5.8- but the wide may feel harder if its not your forte. also, dont climb too far past the final wide crack and accidentally miss the bolts on your left. finally, i'd recommend either rappelling Solar Slab or doing the painted bowl descent rather than rappelling this route- it looks like a rope eater.

4 out of 5 stars I dragged the #6 all this way for that?

A great few pitches. Rapped with 2 70s and got stuck on the last pitch.

Great climb. I wouldn't argue with a 5.10a rating at the slabby crux. Just another lovely day in Red Rock...

Amazing route, mostly face through the cruxes, with some crack. The cruxes are wild with good exposure and the route overall hasnt got a single pitch that isnt worth climbing! It's made my top 5 of Red Rocks for sure!
