Description

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.

Protection

Mostly medium and thin

Bring micro stoppers; they work well to protect the crux. I won't tell you the exact one to use. Feb 16, 2008

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. Nov 11, 2008

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. Jul 7, 2012

This climb is as good as climbing gets. Steep, exciting, great face climbing into a steep exposed corner. You don't need to place gear in the crappy flake below the crux. There are bomber small nuts/RP's and small cams, and you can place several pieces from a good stance, then just gun it to the top! Nov 7, 2016
The thoughtful climber can take a rest at the crux by back-handing the left-facing dihedral after placing the small wire to protect the big move up to the flake above. This is a route the rewards technique, which is why an old guy like me is so happy to return and lead it yet again. Sep 10, 2018
