Move right to locate two more bolted lines, which begin with jugs but turn to attractive stone after the first bolt. This is the first on the left. Solve the very difficult entrance moves to earn the ticket to sustained crimping and high stepping up this beautiful streak of sandstone.

Balls to the wall! Tough starting moves and bad ass climbing after that!!! Felt straight out of Funk Rock City or Sky Bridge Ridge.

As good or better than any of the slabs at Chica Bonita. Nice Work.

nice line. I went a bit left at the 2nd/3rd bolt thru a really nice sequence, might have been off route but it was still really nice. Felt like the logical line to me. i also broke a foot up high when i stood up on it but it actually made it more positive, i think thats a first for me

This is one of those routes that the masses will miss out on. Technical and thought provoking. A tribute to the early days of climbing at The Red.
