Crimpin aint easy

Located in a National Forest Fee Area MORE INFO >>>


Lay back or jam the overhanging crack to a crimpy prow. One of the steepest route in the Ruth Lake area and not a gimmi for the grade. Try not to pump out or else be ready for some air time!!


One of the first route on the left. There is another route that shares the same start. Good Medicine is the route that branches off to the right


7 bolts

This is really a great route, with well placed bolts. Save gas in the crack for the crimpy headwall. In contrast to a few of the other routes up here, I found this full value for the grade as well. Get on it!
