Description:

One of the best single pitch 5.9's in Red Rocks. Start at the base of the twin cracks to the left of Bush Pilots. Climb the right hand crack all the way, occasionally using the left hand. After the crack ends, move left to anchor. This climb can be TR'd after climbing Heavy Spider Karma from their shared anchor. Rappel with one rope, making sure to rap straight down, so the tree is on your right, otherwise, the tree eats your rope.

5 out of 5 stars Belay by Wendell Broussard

Nice climb, it's a sustained 5.9 through out the climb. I was belayed on this climb by a nice 70 y.o. man named Wendell Broussard.
