Description 

Two routes left of Cobble Wobble, and in the main sector of this wall, The Ruse runs up to a potato chip flake near the top.

Getting off the ground is the first crux, and it is reachy and powerful. The entry sequence seems much harder than 5.11 until you get the sequence right. Run up the black streak and faint right, before jugging left (The Ruse). Getting to the anchor is cruxy, spooky, and committing. But you won't die if you miss the lip move.


Protection 

Draws and a rope.
