BETA PHOTO: Ricochete - take either start left is more runnout...


This route is on the far right side of the west face of Nomad Dome and ascends face and cracks to an obvious roof. Pass the roof and continue up on large loose flakes to a two bolt anchor/rappel.

Moderate with that Woodward sting.


Protection is sparse but adequate. A single set of cams to 2", set of stoppers and maybe a couple double length slings to tie off the loose flakes. Bolt anchor/rappel 50 meters double ropes recommended for rappel.

It would be a good idea to have your partner wear a helmet and sunglasses with the loose flakes you will be sending down.
