Community Pillar  Sucess!

One of the last 5.8's I had to yet to complete at Red Rocks. Mostly because I had done Honeycomb Chimney and considered it a better route from what I read. Community was actually a better climb than I thought. The first pitch squeeze was a blast, I like that kind of stuff. The back in the chimney climb with a squeeze at top was also a unique setting. I thought the most important beta that could be handed out is to pass the knot below the lip of that full double rope rap, following the descent we used. Did not have time to study much of the descents as it was raining, but by using Radeks notes, I could see a lot of noobs getting their ropes stuck on that double rope rap. Classic rope snag situation in waiting.
