A huge, slightly overhung corner at the north end of Ragged. Walk past the low-angle slabs in the Cave Slab area and then look straight up to see the route.

Climb a double crack about 20' to a ledge and into the base of the huge overhanging left-facing corner. Follow the crack up the corner to the top. Well protected and exposed.


Standard Ragged rack.

Seems like a neglected climb, the start is a bit crappy, but working up the dihedral is grand- great stemming, didn't know I could do a split! Overall a good climb, anchor situation sucks at the top, typical.

This climb is terrific for the grade. From the ground, it looks way more difficult than it is - Definitely worth doing!

BETA>>> It was very nice to have a #3 Camelot on the final section.

The part that looks hard is easy, and vice versa

All the above comments are spot on! However, the attached picture doesn't look like C.V. to me.

If this route were named Squirrel or something, it might see the traffic it deserves. Final corner is a hoot and nowhere near as hard as it looks. Great option when the right end moderates are occupied.
