Description Suggest change

This route is a variation to Bosch Job. Pitches 1 and 2 follow Bosch Job and the 3rd pitch climbs up and left where Bosch Job moves right.

Begin by scrambling up a low-angle slab (at a right-facing corner) to a big ledge about 75 ft. right from the start of Right On

Pitch 1: Go left around the corner, then up a low-angle slab (5.5) to a belay at a small ledge with a block. 

Pitch 2 (10a): Up steepening face to a bolt, move left to a thin flake which leads to a small left-facing corner. Follow this over a roof, then step right to a 2-bolt hanging belay. 

Pitch 3 (5.12; 12 bolts): Climb past the first 3 bolts of Bosch Job (11+) (Bosch Job traverses about 20 ft. right at this point) then up and left on the blunt "arete" past 9 more bolts to a ledge with a 2-bolt anchor. This pitch is very sustained, with 5.11 moves at each of the first 7 bolts. Rap the route with 2 ropes.

Note on the rating: I redpointed pitch 3, in ideal conditions, with quickdraws hanging and tic marks on all the crux holds, after about 5 days of effort over 2 years, and it felt like about 5.12a/b. To onsight this one might be more like 12c/d? No matter what the rating, this route has some excellent rock quality, and achieves a fairly spectacular position on one of the steepest sections of Saddle Rock's main face.
