This is a thin, sustained, heady lead. In it's whole length there wasn't much below 5.10c and a lot of the moves are committing well above a bolt. Start up the face following the occasional bolt until you're climbing a thin obtuse dihedral. Near the top you'll be liebacking a flake to a large roof that is easy once you get there. There's a huge amount of variety of climbing styles on this climb. If you can do it, do it!

Descent Options:

Rappel with two ropes.

3 out of 5 stars Hard for the grade

It's not that the moves are harder than 11b, it's just that there are a lot of 11 moves with spaced gear. I was mentally sapped after leading this route. Be damn solid for the grade before starting up this one. Definitely not your typical Red Rocks route. I had more fun watching my friend follow this and remember all the cool moves than actually making them. The variety on this route is almost unbelievable!
