|Ragged Edges Area
Nice crack going up a moderate angled wall. The crack trends right then straight up and then back left. Longer slings will help with rope drag.
After topping out, scramble right and down to a small tree with webbing and rap ring. One single rope rap gets you down.
(note - From the base of the wall, this rap is above a pillar to the right of the route. The tree is visible from the ground.)
A alternate rap can be done from above the route Tonto.
Left side of Ragged Edges area.
Small to medium gear (I think the largest we used was a #1 Camalot), a few longer slings to manage rope drag through the zig-zag portions.

Fun route! Excellent rock, good pro, and varied climbing. The new guide says there are anchors up top but I believe they have been chopped (There is a horizontal that you can build an anchor on a few feet from the top). There are several rap options to get down.

Correct - there is no fixed anchor at the top of this climb. This climb is easy for the grade - easier than the 5.5 start of the climbs to the right. Walk right from the top to get to the Tonto Rappel.

This is a wonderful route for a new trad leader! The climbing is easy with lots of holds and the gear placement options are continuous from bottom to top.

Good route for beginner, however I'm a new leader and i was bored on this route. Not a varied climb. Was kind of the same thing throughout.
