1st-2nd Pitches- 220’- 5.8/ Handren has these first two pitches at 240’, but that is a bit long. With a 70m rope you can combine these two pitches. We simul climbed for a short bit to get them combined with 60m ropes. These first two pitches make up a classic Red Rocks 5.8 corner at about the same grade as most of Crimson Chrysalis on even better and cleaner varnished rock. Take the corner past a few trees and past a slung tree on a small ledge and belay off of larger trees on a large ledge above the corner.
