This is the easiest route up the face of Ragged. It is usually done in two pitches.
P1: Climb the crack to the top of the slab. Watch for loose rocks on the belay ledge. This an excellent place to take beginners and teach leading. With care, you can downclimb off the left edge of this ledge to the cave behind the slab.
P2: Climb the obvious corner above the slab (steep!) to the top.
Past Unconquerable Crack, the trail drops down below some large lower-angle slabs. This is the obvious crack in the slab immediately left of Unconquerable.
Medium / Large nuts.
P1 is great for kids

Pretty straight forward route to practice lead on. Doesnt seem like it is climbed too often as quite a bit of grass etc growing on it. Not much pro on P2, small cams go well on the lower crux part of P2. As of Oct 2012 there is a tree half way up you can sling followed by a bomber rock column, so take a couple of extra single length runners.

not sure I'd call that column bomber. I would'nt want to take a lead fall on it.
