Description:

This route climbs a slabby face with white rock in the lower half and red rock in the upper half. It is lovated about 150 yards to the east of the parking are. The lower half of the face is hidden by the fin of rock with forms the east wall of the Front Corridor. It is an enjoyable and well bolted route wich makes for an excellent introduction to multi-pitch climbing.

Descent Options:

Rapell down. Only one rope needed.

4 out of 5 stars fun climbing

Fun climbing, lots of slopey but high friction holds, and very well bolted. Jean led P1 and I led P2.

Might have been a 5.7-.

5 out of 5 stars One of my first multi-pitch.

Cleaned the route.

My fiance proposed after this long day of climbing at Black Cooridor and then Man's Best Friend. :)

5 out of 5 stars Great intro to mult-pitch.

My first multi-pitch climb. I wanted to do this one before trying Unimpeachable Groping. It's a slight pain in the ass to find the anchors needed to rappel to the first belay, but well worth the search. It becomes so slabby that you're practically crawling by the end of the second pitch.

4 out of 5 stars With the family

Did this with a spouse and two kids (11 and 12)! Beautiful day, walked right up. Rapped into start and then lead both pitches. We decided to walk off by going up and then heading left (as you face the cliff). Easy 5.1 down climb in a chimney otherwise just walking down the ridge to the left of the climb. Outstanding multi-pitch easy sport route. Great intro to Red Rocks climbing.
