Description:

Absolutely classic crack climb in a dihedral. Even in Indian Creek this would be a phenominal crack climb. Both pitches have 5.10+ moves on them, but the real crux is in the last 20 feet - tremendous liebacking over a buldge - plug in a 0.75 or #1 Camalot and don't hesitate - GO! If you're strong, lead this in one spectacular pitch.

Descent Options:

Rappel the route with one rope.

5 out of 5 stars Nice

Some hard liebacking on this one, felt a little height dependent too which is rare for a crack. Excellent solid climbing.

5 out of 5 stars awesome

amazing climb, don't get me wrong, but not one of my top 5 cracks in red rocks. punchy and intimidating lower, and the upper crack would be easier if you had the right size hands

5 out of 5 stars simply amazing

possibly one of the best 5.10's i've ever climbed- certainly in the top 5 at Red Rock- the only routes i've done that compare are The Fox, Our Father, and Triassic Sands. Spectacular! (btw- the upper pitch is .10d, it's not sandbagged, it's just powerful at the grade....)
