Led P1 only - right below the anchor is a section where you have to commit to jamming the slippery crack; I found this unnerving (probably didn't help that it was my first gear lead in 6 months). P2 looked beautiful, if intimidatingly wide; I'll have to go back and try it after I develop better crack climbing skills.

This route looks fantastic from the ground. However, the rock itself is somewhat slick making it a bit more difficult than the grade. Watch your belayer coming out of the station for pitch 2. Possilbe linking between p1 & p2 if you don't mind the drag.

Good to do while there, but the routes around it are actually better. Or so I thought.

Ragged Edges is one of the best short 5.8's in Red Rocks. Its one of the mega-classic 2 pitch 5.8's in the area (the other two are The Great Red Book and Lotta Balls). Many TR the first pitch and then call it a day, but its a shame to miss the 2nd pitch, which has some burly moves off belay and then some exciting face climbing protected by wide gear (up to a #5 camalot).

Good luck and enjoy!
