3 out of 5 stars the upper pitches were nice....

I got the impression while adding a pitch to Sunburn today that its alot like its longer neighbor, Sunspot- very alpine in nature, with long run-outs on easy terrain and semi-questionable rock in places. If you're familiar with Red Rocks, it can be a great day out- a little spice on an otherwise less than challenging route. However, if you're new to the area, a trip up Solar Slab may be a better idea, as the nature of this route is not so much high quality perfect rock, but more of a serene, aesthetic outing with good friends on a beautiful day.....

1 out of 5 stars Please rename this Bush Series!

This route would be better named Bush Series as for all the bushwacking on the route and getting to the route required!!! This is by far the worst route I've climbed at Red Rocks. Watch out for crap rock on long easy class 5 runouts as well if my first comments don't dissuade you. My only reprieve on this climb is that any day spent on a bad route beats a great day at work anytime.
