BETA PHOTO: The center area of Ragged - route 13 is Unconquera...
This is one of the best routes anywhere. Climb a crack just right of a slab leaning against the wall, about 200' left of Wiessner Slab. Just to the right of this is the roof marking the start of Subline.
The crux is near the top but the whole line is tough with few good rests.
The traditional grade on this is 5.9 but it's certainly comparable with 10a in the west.
Everything from a small wire to a #3 camalot fits in there somewhere. Mostly larger wires and medium cams.

as with most climbs here, you will be psyched to have a #4 camalot, I once loaned my #4 to a Gypsy and easily replaced it in the same spot with my #5.

CT has several 5.9 classics that are outstanding. Unconquerable is sustained and a fun lead if you place often. It rewards finding the right position, not using the biggest holds. I still can't decide if Unconquerable or Reflections of Fall are my absolute favorite at this grade level in CT. 5.9 to 5.9+ is about right. It is not as hard as many 10as out West - provided you read the rock well.

Mix of crack and face moves. I thought the crux was just above where the crack widens for a bit. Couldn't get a jam, ended up lie-backing to the left with some fun feet work.

A fun bit of crack in an area not known for good crack, .8+ IF the climber has experience climbing splitter crack, as such most CT climbers avoid the good locks and go for the edges, so .9 sounds more accurate, certainly not .10 though. one of the best crack pitches at ragged!
