Adjacent Climbs
<< Desiderata
Red Handed >>
Start between Red Handed and Desiderata. Intense, sequency moves directly past 2 bolts gain the traverse of Red Handed. Finish up the steep scoop above (5 bolts to a new lower off) The route is squeezed in but the climbing is all independent. Might be worth one star but Iíll wait and see what others think.

Worked out the second half with little difficulty, the start looks a little blind though. Couldn't see without a head torch :)

retro flash. No longer sure that this warrants 7a, felt very straightforward.

Felt pretty easy, but had the benefit of watching Dan E onsight in first. Slightly harder climbing than the 6c's at the crag, but the moves are all very obvious.

1st Red Point Attempt. Nice but tricky moves at the bottom to a good rest. The upper wall is solid really nice independent climb. Tricky to onsight but not too bad when you know how. Cool route!!
eugeneth - Lead RP - 11/Mar/12 with Duncan C

Cool moves, two hard sections with a good rest on red handed. Commit to the layback at the top and you will be rewarded.
