1st Pitch- 160’- 5.10a/ This is a stout and sustained pitch for the grade at Red Rock. It starts off with a 30’ tall off-width section that needs large gear to protect (6”). You can avoid this section by climbing the first 30’ or so of Sand Felipe and then traversing back right to the left most of two cracks that rise above the off-width section. This thin crack (C3’s) runs up good varnished ground until it peters out and you need to traverse right past a manky bolt (2010) to the wider cracks that lead to the shared fixed belay with Triassic Sands.
