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!

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.

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.

Great 2 pitch crack climb. There is mandatory crack climbing on P1 and P2. The crux arrives about 15 feet below the 1st belay and about 15 ft above it. The large offwidth above is easily climbed on the right wall. A # 4 fits nicely. The climb eases back significantly after this and wide gear for the rest of the climb is optional.
