Rat Salad climbs directly up the East prow of the Sanctuary on soft white rock slabs. Some simu-climbing was done, some marginal belays and bushes were used. The Crux is at the pin (was a solid placement at the time of the f.a.). Cross the summit plateau and scramble up the final summit block.


Descent- rappels from pines to a single drilled pin in the lower angle slab.


1 each of B.D. cams .5-3, 2 each of TCU's 1-3, 2- 200 ft. ropes
