Description Suggest change

This is an interesting route that was better than it looked at first. I believe it has probably seen prior ascents, at least in part as an escape or alternate option to parts of 'Earache My Eye.'

Climb up a mellow corner for perhaps 40 feet to a large, incut ledge, then stand up on a horn of rock and pull over junky-looking, but solid bulge on slopers (crux) to reach jugs and a bomber 2" cam placement. Continue up the second half of the route, a second, left-facing corner past stoppers, cams, locks and jams to reach the top. A good thread up top makes for a good belay point on the right-hand wall.

Descend via a heads-up but mellow scramble off- down to the base of Ruby Slipper, and then below.

This climb perhaps would be better with a fixed tie-off and a ring at the top.

Location Suggest change

On the Nebel Horn Ridge, this route lies just downhill (south) of Ruby Slipper. There is a pair of shallow, left-facing corners there which extend from ground to summit with a large ledge at mid-height. This route is the leftmost of them, the right being "Earache My Eye."

Protection Suggest change

A rack to 2.5" + cordalette for the tie-off belay up top.
