Description

Ram takes the short overhang just off the trail about where the trail intersects the crag. The whole line was done trad with no bolts and using the bolts. Regardless, a #2 or #3 TCU is advisable for the final move below the anchor and a #2 or #3 Camalot is nice after the second bolt. Good warm up. A bit of tape on the fingers makes the exit move more enjoyable.

Protection

Bring a couple of TCUs, a # 2 or 3 Camalot, and a few draws.

It doesn't look like much from the ground, but the moves are fun, especially the last few to the anchors. For gym climbers, the finger lock near the top may feel tough, but it's very good. Jul 29, 2002

Doesn't look like much from the ground, but pulling the roof off the textbook pinky lock is fun. I hopped on the route thinking that the fixed pro would suffice, which it did, but I would think about bringing a couple of small stoppers and TCU's for the final moves. A fall from the anchors could hurt. Mar 27, 2004

Short but fun, and the moves just need a little power. Jun 22, 2006

You can probably get away without pro on this if you're comfortable with the grade. The runout section is fairly easy. I carried several Camalots (#0.75 to #3) and placed none of them. It was simpler to keep moving left.

The finish was the only hard part of the route - probably 5.10d'ish in difficulty. The rest of the route wasn't very hard. Jun 30, 2008

Fun enough. I did it trad, but it doesn't make any difference difficulty-wise. Gear is good and easy, and where you want it. The "easy clip" anchors were welcome. Sep 14, 2010
