Overview
Rob Roy is a clean climb on slick rock, with many tricky slab sections. Unfortunately, it is too runout for most people; if leading, the belayer should do a careful job spotting the leader until they get to the first bolt. You can toprope this climb with two ropes by climbing the Friendship Route.

History
FA: Richard Harrison, Paul Crawford, Paul Van Betten, Sal Mamusia, Paul “Obi” Obenheim, 1983.
Approach
With a long approach, First Creek Canyon is paradoxically one of the easiest approaches for the canyons of Red Rocks. While it is a long walk, it is on an old, flat jeep road for most of the way, with only a few sections of sandy wash bottom to slow you down. Since the trailhead for First Creek is outside the Loop Road, and since the climbs are mostly short with simple rappels, climbing in First Creek Canyon is among the most flexible in Red Rocks.

Descent
Rappel the route.
