Rusty on lead


Another classic Reppy route at Ragged. This goes up the left side of the Skull and Bones block.

There is a hard move near the bottom that is difficult to protect unless the fixed pin has been replaced. This can be avoided by traversing in from the left above the tiny roof at the bottom. Above this, a classic thin crack leads to the crux where you pass the left edge of the roof.


Mostly medium and thin

Bring micro stoppers; they work well to protect the crux. I won't tell you the exact one to use.

A great line. Be mindful of some loose holds around the left of Skull and Bones in the crack - they look like they could pull out at any moment. Ultimately, you'll find that you don't really need to rely on them in order to pull out that little section, but be mindful. I was toproped.

Bring a few extra wires in the small sizes. I sure wish I did!

The above-mentioned pin is in place a bit left of the regular line.
