Hot Fudge Thursday, 5.9

3rd Pitch- 170’- 5.9/ Pitch three is the 2nd most challenging pitch of the route. Move out left passing two new (2007) bolts on your way to the base of the large crack. Place good pro in the base of the crack and climb it until you reach a bolt then move out left onto facial features as you traverse left and up on suspect rock (we had a foot hold give way here). Reach the top of the feature and continue past a cut bolt (2007) to a two bolt station up and to the left on a ledge.

It was tempting to take the crack all the way up. Red Rocks sandstone is so generous though you can climb just about everything.
