Most climbers will probably access this by descending from Crescent Crack but you can also access it by climbing The Ross Connection or climbing Short Corner and continuing up some loose 5.7 G cracks directly below Razor's Edge. The route climbs tiny edges up a vertical face immediately right of The Ross Route.

Route Description

Start: You can set up a natural belay on the big ledge left of the route's start. You can also pretty safely belay with no anchor at all if you stay down in the alcove. You can also anchor to the 2-bolt/chain station at the start of the route.

The crux is above bolt 2. But it is sustained. The best you can do for natural gear to back the 2-bolt station on top is thread a runner through some nearby pinched rocks.


A 2-bolt/chain station, 6 bolts and a 2-bolt/Fixe trad anchor station.
