Sunny on lead.


On the right side of the Ruckman Cave are several reasonably decent routes whose worst characteristic is being close to vertical. Pellet Gun is about 50 ft right of the overhang and shares an anchor with Primer. Pellet Gun is characterized by blocky climbing that has shed some terrifying chunks in the past, however, it is a good morning warm-up and the only 5.10 in the area. Worth a run as long as the belayer remains vigilant.


10 draws and a rope.

A big hold recently broke off at the start, it's now sitting on the ground at the base.
