Description

Sustained moves at the grade make for an amazing route. Not too long and good bolting make this a great climb. The only "crux" component could be the friction section about a third of the way up.

Location

This is the second route from the left on Ripple Wall.

Protection

5 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

Agree with others here - this climb is only 5.8. Way easier than Tava or Eclipse This on Solar Slab which are also rated 5.10.

Stewart Green's guidebook lists it as 5.8, which I think is correct.

Fragile flakes above the last bolt. Easy climbing, but if a hold breaks, a long fall is possible. Nov 4, 2015

If "Rethinking the Ethics" is a 10, no way this is a 10. Sep 22, 2013

A very nice climb with just one crux sequence about midway up, good footwork will take you through the somewhat thin section, then it is easy cruising to the top.

Great climb! Very sustained on small edges and smears. Kept me thinking the whole time. Jun 8, 2010
