Description:

probably the best trad route at Red Rocks. good clean crack system bottom to top. not a bad pitch on it. the guide book seems to overrate the difficulty, seemed more like:5.8,5.8,5.9, 5.11+ fingers, 5.10 hands, 5.7tunnel thru,5.11 hands. The guide books all say the climb startes 100' on a ramp below Crimson Chrysalls but it is more like 200' (there is a corner 100' below CC that parties have started, thinking it was Cloud Tower)

Traded pitches. I led the last pitch hand crack clean. I fell following the hard fingers pitch.
