Getting weather forecast...
DescriptionRitz has a mixture of good and bad rock. Some areas are sandy, but many are solid, and the landings are very good. The north face is slightly overhanging and highly featured for endless possibilities. Just be careful what and how you pull on because it hasn't been fully vetted. The northwest facing overhang is featured and has numerous problems. There are also a handful of very good problems that climb the boulder's south facing overhang.
Ritz makes for a great spot to visit during the winter. Otherwise, it's south-facing overhang can make for a hot experience during the warmer seasons.
Getting ThereFrom the parking area, head west down the hill to the creek, cross the creek, and head up the hill in a slightly northwest direction. Accessing this boulder can be done from the Chinese Algebra parking area (I recommend this) as well, just follow the road north after the creek crossing, eventually turn right off the dirt track, follow the wash, and it will take you very close to the boulder. Reference the page map for a more precise location, as this one really likes to hide.
