Fun scramble, but with a lot of brush in the ascent gully. Straightforward route with cairns.

did this hike solo - the ridge traverse from the north wasn't bad; however, the descent down into Willow Springs canyon was a little hairy - especially the second half after I lost the cairned route and the temperature was on the rise. It was good that I had a rope and plenty of water. It was unfortunate that I absolutely "shredded" the seat of my pants while coming down.

A good route finding scramble. Went up trailhead along Rocky Gap near Willow Springs parking lot. Plenty of cairns to keep you going and at least 2 fairly tall chimneys.

Been to the top 1 time, not sure the route, but it was hairy. Lots of bush wacking and route finding.

I don't think I have any desire to do this route again. The descent wasn't pleasant either.

Man, there are a lot of "non-tech" ways up, though some may involve class 5 and rotten, crumbly ss.

Climbed Group Therapy and Sandy Hole. The chimney in P3 of Sandy hole was a lot of fun. Many people do not try this moderate route (Sandy Hole), but I would highly recommend it!

Hi, I saw you mentioned on here somewhere that you climbed Sandy Hole.
Where did you fine the beta? I can't find anything other than the short
squib in the red book. Thanks.

November 23, 2004, Healy's Haunted House:

A very fun route! Probably better than Group Therapy and just a notch below Tunnel Vision (as far as how memorable it is). Much easy chimneys and wide cracks (though face climbing gets you thru. most of these). After 3 times, getting the descent gully dialed...now took us about 35 minutes.



July 10, 2004, Group Therapy:

Did this as a "warm up" climb for the bigger one the following day. Figured if we can take the July heat on a climb that receives sunshine all day long, we'd be fine on the shady Crimson Chrysalis. The climbing was actually pleasant - there were breezes blowing thru. constantly. The descent gully was hot however. Nice, fun route. P1 is kind of run-out but rel. easy (5.6). Upper pitches protect just fine if you have big gear (if you don't most are fairly easy .7's). Linked P3 and P4 into single pitch with about 20 feet of simul climbing (easy terrain, 5.5).



March 15, 2004, Tunnel Vision:

Climbed this fun route with my wife. As far as comparing it to other 5.7's we've done at Red Rocks, think it's a lot more memorable than say Olive Oil or Johnny Vegas. Maybe it's because we don't get to do chimneys very often and this route had more than one. The descent gully takes about 30-45 minutes (no raps required if you follow the right set of cairns) and not 15 like the book claims.

We got off route early on and had some very long pitches but found our way back on the route at the Tunnel pitch. Fun route! Very pleasant temperature on the climb in the shade on a 105 degree day. The descent was equally fun downclimbing chimneys and gullies!

Challenging route-finding, great scrambling, terrific views - solitude. Not a soul on the mountain.

Climbed it again with DB in 2009 (?) after taking some godawful route up Tunnel Vision Peak first.

Didn't actually summit, but we did reach the top of the climb. Of all the long trad climbs in the 5.6 to 5.8 range in Red Rocks, this is not the top of the list of ones to recommend. While many pitches are excellent, there's some funk too. The tunnel isn't all that special either, just run out. But hey, enough of the negativity, we climbed, we didn't fall, and we reached the top, so it was a good day.

I've climbed the routes on Angel Food wall many times, but I visited the summit for the first time on April 5. Once is enough. If you have any sense, you will be content to leave the summit unbagged. Stick to the walls.
