Description

This is the route immediately right of the mega-classic Ricochet on the tall, vertical wall above the talus field as you approach the Winchester Cave. It's not as good as Richochet and doesn't see much traffic; nevertheless, it's a cool, vertical excursion on varied stone.

Start in the overhanging, obtuse corner and fire bouldery moves past a pair of hard clips to gain the vertical face above. Most of the serious-type climbing is up on this face, with the occasional run-out on 5.10 territory and the potential for some ledgy falls should you blow it. Beware of loose holds and a coating of lichen/dust on the rock, as this route runs seasonally with water.

Protection

10-12 quickdraws and a 60 meter rope.
