Starts off broken ledges with rotten flakes. Not lead very often, though it does happen. Follow crack system up using face holds and jams. There is a cool section in the middle with the "huggy flake". Fun, long pitch if you don't mind some choss thrown in for flavor.


About two hundred feet south of main ampitheater.


You name it once you look at it! An assortment of cams, some of which should be quite large. Wires.


This route is named after Jim Ronnigen, one of the original North Shore Climbers ca. 1975-7. It was led, on-sight by Jim and Steve Mabely in 1976. Jan 9, 2008

Route was off width and has a difficult portion in the middle that almost requires a arm/leg/body jam to get past an otherwise blank portion. The 'bear hug' portion was gym like and enjoyable.
Last shelf and lower (~20' from bottom) appears to almost completely covered in sharp loose deteriorating rock. Very interesting how the rock is seemingly shattering like glass. We did not proceed past last shelf because of the Mordor like rock. There is a couple thorn bushes near a ledge in the center of the route about 40' up. The bushes are very much in the way, please bring shears, thick leather gloves, hand saw, or herbicide with you if you climb here and clear it out. Apr 25, 2015
