This climb follows the obvious left-facing ramp/corner between Ahab and the first pitch of Salathe. Start in a crack system slightly to the right and then move left into the corner about 40ft up. Somewhat awkward climbing leads to a small ledge with an old 1/4" bolt on it. Above this you have to transfer from a good finger crack on the left over to a shallow groove on the right. Then another traverse out onto the face is made to gain a bolted anchor out right.

Bring pro to 2" but it mostly takes finger size stuff.

Rap with 2 ropes. The bolts are good.
