Black Corridor - Red Rocks - November 2, 2010

Rolling on to LA from the St George, UT area we made a stop at Red Rocks N.M. outside Las Vegas.  Since we didn't have much time we went sport climbing and parked at the Second Pullout to head an area we knew well called the Black Corridor.  The Black Corridor is a narrow canyon about 80' deep and only 10' across at the bottom.  I lead up a nice 5.9 that seemed like it had just been bolted.
Then Anja lead up a 5.10c she had done before.
The climb is really fun working up large hueco features to the crux, which is big roof move large hueco with poor footholds.
I took a lap on top rope and then Anja took a lap and we hit the road again.
That evening we drove on to Venice, CA. We got to our friends Kevin and Lauren's house late so we crashed in the van on the street. Plus crashing in the van made me feel better about our bikes on the back of the van and all the stuff inside.
