I love Ralph and Bob's
An OK climb, but less traveled at least- no lines here. The climb has some variety and also has pretty good gear opportunity, but is not a classic splitter or corner that the gorge is so well known for.
Climb the crack system to a ledge with small trees and gear (belay optional) the continue on a wide crack to the top, or go left and climb a harder crack (5.9) to finish. The alternate finish was by J. Bronaugh & T. Freezel, '89.
From the approach, arriving below the Cruisemaster dihedral, go left out around a blunt corner and come into a left-facing Open-Book corner with some cracks a meter or so apart.
Rack to a #4 camalot and enough slings to run the pitches together.

I did the first pitch as a warm-up while I was waiting to get on Autumn. It was not an enjoyable climb. My follower agreed.

There are bolted anchors here, but if you plan to TR this bring some rope to extend them, they are set back about 10 feet from the end of the climb.
