Friar, 5.9
4th Pitch- 35’- 5.9R+/ Start up the arête and make an aggressive move from the deck to get your feet above the overhang. You can place a cam lower left here, but it probably won’t protect you from an ankle bust if you fall at this point. Place a nut or two and trust going out right fairly early despite what chalk you might see above and left on run out face terrain. Once you make another crux move around the arête and onto the south face of the balanced block, there is a bolt and easier climbing above on the arête lands you on top of a very cool feature at Red Rocks.
