Description [Edit]

This is a fun lead with three distinct cruxes throughout the climb, each of them is well-bolted. It is classic Red Rock Canyon with lots of smearing, small edges, and tenious stances...as well as sand if it was any time near a storm (wind, rain, or otherwise).

Location [Edit]

It is the fifth set of anchors from the north on the Ripple Wall. It is just left of a block at the base of the cliff (which is the start for Baja Ha Ha).

Protection [Edit]

10 bolts, 2 bolt anchor.

This is a fantastic climb with tenuous cruxes and sustained delicate movement. Sep 12, 2011

Fantastic line that is well worth climbing. Thin bouldery start to the first bolt followed by high angle, technical, slab moves, then traverses back out left to a crimpy crux move followed by some easy moves to the anchors. Well bolted though through each of the cruxes, so go for it! Apr 14, 2012
Great route, the second to last bolt is loose. Mar 30, 2017
