Red Rocks: Triassic Sands (Oct. 27, 2012)


Triassic Sands 5.10c (3 pitches)

What a fantastic route! The crux moves over the roofs on Pitch 2 are exhilarating and the never-ending hand jamming above is as delicious as it gets: bring three #2 and three #3 cams for this section. Some climbers choose to continue onto pitch 4 and 5, but we didn't like the look of the "diving board" flake sitting above the third belay. We rappelled home after completing the first three pitches and celebrated with a beer!

Can't beat this!
