Description:

For more information, support the park and buy the guidebook by Stewart Green. The book now has it at a 5.10A. This is a killer, technical route. The kind I like.

2 out of 5 stars meh

Definitely not a 5.10a. The book I have: "Rock Climbing Colorado" (it's a falcon guide by Stewart Green) places this at 5.8, and I felt like that was a little generous. Overall I felt like this route was very unrewarding. If you're in Red Rocks and want a good 5.8, go over to Ripple Wall and try Wake to Wake.

3 out of 5 stars not a 5.10

In the Red Rock guidebook by Stewart Green it says 5.8
Fun if you actually follow the bolts

3 out of 5 stars I thought that was hard

I didn't realize the grade had changed from the last edition. I thought it was a 5.8. In fact, I still think it's only a 5.9.
