Fold Out, 5.8

  • Fold Out- 290’- 2 Pitches- 5.8/
  • Fold Out is a fun and easy route for the grade by Red Rocks standards. The first pitch follows the obvious wide crack running up the right side of Necromancer. Tons of protection exists whenever you want it. The crack thins towards the top just like the last pitch of Birdland over on Spectrum Wall. This thin portion is the crux of the pitch. The 2nd pitch traverses out aggressively to the left directly above the rappel station for Sensuous Mortician. Follow the horizontal crack on large holds and pull an easy roof above into a scoop of light colored rock. Continue trending left over a single bolt (but hard to see) onto easy but run out ground that follows a seam up to a tree with rap slings (2008) that can be used in conjunction with Sensuous Mortician’s rap for two raps to the ground with double ropes. Otherwise scramble up to the top of Necromancer and rappel down the descent gully to the east.
