Climb the first pitch of Weather or Not to the ledge with a single bolt and hang a belay there. RP Diagonal climbs the leftward diagonalling finger tip crack from this ledge to a set of anchor bolts. Rappel with two ropes to ground from anchors. The protection is difficult but solid on this route.


Multiple sets of RP type nuts, Two sets of stoppers, Cams to 2.5", Quick draws

The actual name of this route is R.I.P. Diagonal, not "RP" as listed on this website. This was a miss-print in the "Poor Person's Guide to the Needles".
