Description

I think this is a really fun route, very good positive edges and sustained. The only drawback is it's short. Another 40 feet of the same and it'd get three stars. Well worth doing.

Location

Short route just as you start to go downhill to the right end of the crag. Its anchors are about even with the start of the lefthand routes. Shady belay.

Protection

Bolts & chains.

Feels harder than the 10 to the right. Crimpy and overhung. Jan 3, 2016
This route had all the mixed metal bolts replaced on 12/20/15 with ASCA 1/2 inch Stainless Steel Rawl 5 Piece bolts. The Anchors were not mixed metal so we left them in place. Dec 22, 2015

Probably my favorite 10 at the Ruins. Short but sweet with a couple of dynamic moves (at least for me) and positive holds. Makes for a much more enjoyable warm-up than the slabby 9s at the left end of the crag. Dec 21, 2015
Have to agree with Jon Ruland, this one did feel harder than the route just right of it. Mar 2, 2013

After you reach the anchor, traverse right and continue up Medicine Bag to its anchor. This adds 20' to the climb and makes this route more fun/worthwhile. Feb 9, 2008
