Climb the flake that starts Ripple. At the top of it step off left and climb delicate edges to first bolt below bulge section. Through the bulge and to another bolt (crux), then onward past four more to anchor. A little headier than MD20/20 but still around 5.8.


Although this is a bolted climb you may want to take a small cam for the initial crack, just to get you to the first bolt. Once you clip that pass four more bolts to a two bolt rap anchor.

I can see wanting to place a piece in the flake before you reach that first bolt. It's a bit more daring than reaching the first bolt on Ripple, although it's still pretty easy terrain. I thought the movement over the bulge was great. Big holds and high steps. Fun!
