Rat's Alley

Description 

This climb is worth doing if you're looking for a nice 5.7 trad climb in this area. It has really cleaned up over the years. Follow the crack for about 30 ft to a stance, then pass the wider section to reach a very thick flake to the left of the shuts.

Location 

Climb up to a ledge to reach the corner about 20 ft to the right of Total E Clips.

Protection 

Larger gear. Bring a few 3-4" pieces. There's also a few spots for 2" pieces. A #5 Camalot will also fit for the moves off of the stance in the middle of the climb. Shuts.
