|Ridge 1 aka Stairway to Heaven
From the top of Ridge One, traverse right for 30 feet (5.9). Place a #2 Camalot and head for a sharp point out right, then go straight up and over the apex of the large overhang. One can sling the point to reduce the runout and also place a small cam behind a flake at the lip. After pulling the lip, continue to the summit or build an anchor in a horizontal slot just over the lip with large cams.
This is on the North end of Ridge One.
The traverse eats cams of all sizes. A #3 or #3.5 Camalot is useful behind the first horn. A gray Alien protected the first move off the ground going around the corner but was then pulled to avoid drag.
PG leading Like Hell It Is, 5.11a.
Andrew on the crux.
Jon going for the spike.
