Description

This is a fun little route; a straight up start and straight line through the route will earn the 5.9- grade, although it is easier to cheat around to either side. The early crux comes right after the second bolt, and after the third is an easy run out to the anchors.

Location

This is the last route on Ripple Wall, located in a cove-like section right next to Jumping the Gun.

Protection

3 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

Guidebook says 5.8+ This was probably true once, but the slab is seriously worn. The wall is half red from the rock, and half black from where people's shoes have smeared off. Oct 5, 2009

Short fun route, but had more fun TRing the various lines directly below and to the left of the anchors. The options make it worth a second trip up on TR. Jun 23, 2011

Going right (safer) or left (sketchier) at the crux keeps this at grade. Straight up the bolt line may have been 5.8 back when, but due to the erosion from feet, rain, and wind, this crux has to be .10 something. There are no hands for a move or two on very sketchy smears. Jun 24, 2011

"and after the third is an easy run out to the anchors."

Run out? If you're calling that a run out, WOW!

LOL!

"5.8 back when, but due to the erosion from feet, rain, and wind, this crux has to be .10 something."

Or damned CLOSE!

I agree! Nov 2, 2012
