Description 

The furthest right route at Funarama, protection can feel a little spaced but is there when you need it. Begin at a slabby ramp and climb past the first bolt on the right then straight up on intermittent cracks and ledges with a few face moves past two small gear cracks and a second bolt. The crux is the last moves above the second bolt up to the welcome jugs of the belay ledge.

Location 

The farthest right and farthest downhill route at Funarama Right-Hand

Protection 

Two bolts plus a medium wire and a 3/4" cam. Two bolts at top for anchor, traverse climbers left on ledge to First Class rap station for descent.

After the first bolt, I placed a #1 camalot in a horizontal and a green alien in a vertical crack to the left. I had to clean out the crack on the left with my nut key to get the cam in. Then a small/medium nut in the crack midway.

Great route, but be solid at the grade as you do some crux moves well above your gear.

A quick and worthwhile little route. The gear is spaced often quite far apart, but it's alway easy climbing through those sections. Standard rack to #1 C4 is plenty.

The crux is a foot or two above the second bolt and requires a few legit technical slab moves to keep you honest.
