I think this is the best single pitch of climbing I've done at Red Rocks.
Climbed with Dow, just after following Triassic Sands. Another great route on an outstanding wall.
My reward for 2 days of climbing chimney & offwidth routes. Didn't bring any TCUs so only had nuts to protect the thin sections (as recommended by Supertopo). Made things a bit spicey at the cruxes. Did the requisite TR of the Our Father crux pitch (very fun).
Ok, maybe I was tired, 6 straight days of climbing, end of the day climb...but the thin polished finger crack to pull the small roof after the traverse kind of worked me. Was in no mood to fall with my bad back, but eventually committed. Took three or four up and downs to psyche up for it. Definitely as tough as the first pitch of Triassic if not more so, I agree with folks on that. A 70m rope makes it all the way to the top. Watch a flake that can snare the end of your rope, pulling it on the first rap of Our Father....that looks like a great route
fun climb, don't pass up getting a TR on our father, this really is one of the better pitches in RR
Wholesome crack climbing indeed. Caroline led the first tough pitch. Ran it up about 160 feet to belay. Fine lead.
