Edge of the Sun, 5.10d
3rd Pitch- 120’- 5.10d/ This is one of the better mixed pitches I have led at Red Rocks. The rock is great and the exposure and position fantastic. The first few meters to turn the arête back left are the highlight, but not the hard climbing. Traverse up and left on good rock and holds, placing gear to supplement a single bolt until you are on a easier angled arête of sorts. Follow this easier run out section up to a small foot rail. Move out left and start climbing the bolts (7 or so) up the varnished face on crimp edges. The crux move is a rightward stretch below a mini corner. Mount this lone feature on the wall and continue up the bolts through a water streak and some white rock to finish at the top fixed belay.
