Watch Brad Gobright and Ben Hanna climb the 10-pitch Dreefee 5.13d in 2017, it’s Red Rocks’ most difficult big wall route.

“Last year I was trying this route back in March, and I was at the base of the climb when I took a nasty slip. Fell about 60 feet and broke my ankle really bad,” said Gobright.

“I ended up having to crawl my way out of the Canyon. It took about five hours, it was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. So I’m back this year for redemption.”

Gobright had a strong end of 2017 after recovering from his injury. In September and early October, he climbed Peace, a 5.13d single-pitch face climb established by Ron Kauk in 1995; then The Bachar-Yerian, a 5.11c X four-pitcher established by John Bachar and Dave Yerian in 1981; then Golden Rose, a single-pitch 5.13b just to the right of Peace; a linkup of Sunspot Dihedral 5.11b and Solar Flare 5.12+; Final Frontier, a nine-pitch 5.13b opened by James Lucas and Nik Berry in on Fifi Buttress; and Father Time, Mikey Schaefer’s 20-pitch 5.13b on Middle Cathedral.

Then he and Jim Reynolds set a new speed record on The Nose, on El Capitan, Yosemite, of two hours 19 minutes and 44 seconds.
