Richard Robinson on slip and slide.


Start on the rail and move up to the lip.

Despite the height, there is a hole / chute below the crux of the climb, hence the "R" rating. Missing the lip may result in a nasty fall through the vortex of doom. As the Drtopo guidebook says "avoid sliding down the bomb bay".


Faces the opening to Easy Mumblage (can see straight through the cave that is Easy Mumblage) and is on the boulder to climber's left of NRA. Look for the bomb bay hole to confirm that it's the problem you're looking for.


Crashpad, spotters and some luck if you fall.

I'm pretty sure that Scott Erler did this first. Has anyone actually pitched through the bomb bay? Now that would be a cool climbing video.
