Description [Suggest Change]
Road Rash begins on slightly overhanging rock with natural pro to get established. Quickly the angle eases as one pulls on sketchy flakes to stand up. Once established you must surmount the lowest flake to clip the bolt in the slab above. Swing your sticks once or twice in the 1-2" ice as you work to get a stance above the bolt which should just get you to the overlap above and more pro. From here follow the left-leaning system, past a tricky layback, to anchors above and left.

Protection [Suggest Change]
Bolts and natural pro. Nuts and micros with a few larger pieces.
