Really a great route, lots of fun, mostly relaxed climbing. small crux move on P1 and last pitch, but nothing hard.

Are all RR climbs this nice? This was my first visit to this area and it turned into a very relaxed climb (with a lot of company).

We climbed Cat in the Hat to the top of Mescalito. Above the final standard pitch, there is 500ft of 4th class and then a final pitch of 5.7. Found that to be the crux by far of the whole route with a committing chimney onto the red face. We scrambled to the top to summit Mescalito and then chose to the infamous complicated walk off (plus 2 raps) via the North Fork of Pine Creek. Lost daylight and chose to bivy. In the morning light, it was still challenging but easier to find the cairns leading to a gully where the first rap station is located. I would call this climb "Epic Lite." :-)

My 8th solo climb at RR....young couple (actor/producer) from LA kind enough to let me join them on their ropes down. Had not climbed it 5 yrs, and definitely forgot the last few meters of slab...woke me on solo for sure.

Second time up this route. First time was around 2006 or so with a big group (first trad & multi-pitch). This time I led and added some variations. Started with the '5.9 off-width' 40ft right of the start. This is actually a full-on squeeze chimney. A bit dirty and protection requires a little thought. There are some decent ledges in the back but good technique is helpful. Then we cruised the mid-section and finished with a lead up the 5.10b/c arete. It's a bit balancy but the crux is fairly short, just before and after the second bolt. We didn't see any other climbers and only one group of 3 was even hiking in the canyon all day. I guess the heat keeps the people away.

Great climb, lots of variety. On this day, we had the route to ourselves, which I understand is unheard of! Ok, it was a bit chilly, but no wind and beautiful sunshine.

Absolutely gorgeous day for climbing! Pretty much had the place to ourselves, perfect temps and almost no wind. Pitches 4 and 6 are definitely the most fun (and the spiciest!). I ran it out in some places, but the climbing was mostly easy.

My very first route in Red Rocks. Climbed with Etsuko, Maria and Mike as two parties of two. We started in early afternoon and finished rappeling shortly after dark. Great, easy and memorable climbing. Thankfully, we didn't have to wait for anyone

The route was way too crowded. I was very bored waiting for other climbers...

Woooo, it was a cold day. There were two parties ahead of us -- I think they both bailed out. I led the first pitch and it was fun but poor Craig froze at the base. Funky climbing! It had been probably 20 years since I've climbed at Red Rocks. Can't wait to go back and finish the route.

There are far too many people at this climb. We were at the trailhead at 7am and were still only able to get the first three pitches done before rapping down and hiking back to the car in the dark. We spent most of the day waiting for others. Looks like a great climb, so I hope to come back another day and finish it.

I climbed this twice between 2000 and 2002. It's a fun, moderate, well-protected route.
