“Red Rocks Is For N00bs”

A report on Red Rocks by climbers whose experience outdoors was limited to the Midwest: 

“Well, we’re not completely noobs. We’ve both been climbing for over a year, and have

spent more than several days climbing outdoors in the Black Hills, Devil’s Lake in Baraboo, WI, Barn Bluff in Red Wing, MN, and Taylors Falls, MN. However, we are pretty noobish when it comes to sport climbing outdoors. Barn Bluff is really the only bolted sport crag within driving distance for us. It’s also so heavily used that the sandstone is polished to a fine gloss and on busy days, you may end up waiting for routes.”
