2x  Sucess!

I climbed this twice between 2000 and 2002. It's a fun, moderate, well-protected route.

Cat in the Hat  Sucess!

Stacy and I were the first up Cat in the Hat for 2008. One other team on the route, but they bailed before the last pitch. A tad chilly I suppose. Little surprised why this route is so popular. Only 2 of the 6 were real pitches (we combined the first two as I assume most do) and I concur that they were real nice for the grade, 4 and 6. But I have been on much more aesthetic routes. The arete variation (can do this once you rap back down to the top of #4) is fully bolted now, feels like 5.10b. Radek's notes were excellent. His always trump any guide book. Speaking of, saw a new guide book is out for Red Rocks, a real thick one that is on REI's shelf, forget the author, but it did not look very special to me after I read a few routes I have climbed that were not previously published. Looks like she stuffed a ton of stuff in there, but not real quality particularly when you can pull this stuff off the net from "first handers" for free. Cheers.

Great first trad route  Sucess!

Can be supercrowded but, as my first trad route in Red Rock, I really enjoyed it, especially the last pitch.
I've climbed this route twice so far.

Excellent day out with Parisa. The last two pitches are great!

Meow  Sucess!

My first climb in Red Rocks. Shade all day which kept the climbing pretty chilly, but still had a great time.

Good times...  Sucess!

After not climbing for many years my partner Matthew Holliman asked me if I would like to do this route which turned out to be a blast!
