Olive Oil, located on the Rose Tower, is another great classic in the Red Rocks Canyon. Have a look at my Cat in the Hat page to see the mountain or look below to see a few pictures taken on the route.

After a bit of trouble, almost starting off route in a wrong location, we finally found the right spot. Here is Elvira cleaning the first pitch.

Elvira climbing the second (and best) pitch.

Elvira approaching the third belay.

Hans leading the final pitch - an interesting off-width which was not that easy to climb with a backpack on!

Elvira enjoying the great view from the summit of Rose Tower.

The rocks of the First and Second Pullout crags are seen on the left

and Las Vegas is visible in the horizon - pretty weird!
