The Rift is located right of the large chasm at the Joint Wall. It ascends a red corner. The difficulties are right at the start with tricky feet and side pulls for the hands. Getting to the second bolt is the crux. After this you climb up the dihedral to a small overhang with maybe a 5.11 move to surmount it. The last moves to the anchor feel a bit run out but are not hard.


Look for a red dihedral on the right side of the Joint.
