Description 

A beautiful line that requires a solid trad skills and a bit of a cool head. Start in the right facing dihedral about 15 feet right of Ringtail Cat. Climb the dihedral and gain the crack system above. A series of bolts appears on the right (these are for "Ruby") ignore these, instead move up and left to a single bolt. Clip it and head straight up to a committing move protected by tricky gear. Continue to the top. A rappel anchor is on the right after topping out, make sure your rope is long enough.


Location 

Start is 15 feet right of Ringtail Cat, which is the leftmost climb on the wall.


Protection 

Stoppers, Doubles <1", Singles to 1-3"
