Description

Climb up easy rock to the high first bolt (there's a pin to clip down low if you're worried). The crux comes around the 3rd bolt with good, sustained, and thoughtful climbing before and after. Above, you'll latch on to some big pockets before finishing on easier terrain to the anchors. This climb trends right the entire way and you may feel slightly perplexed at some of the moves as spots are devoid of straight-on edges to pull on, instead relying on a lot of sidepulls and pinches with feet out right. Good rock throughout this climb with enjoyable movement.

Location

After coming up the approach trail, hike left along the base, passing underneath The Tube and the other initial climbs. Just past the section along the cliff where you have to step across some gray limestone (2nd class moves) you are at the base of Ramp Festival. Starts at about the same belay stance as California Dreamin'.

Protection

6 bolts and anchor.

I thought this was a pretty cool route. My wife hated it. The climbing is not very straightforward, and I probably did more groping than at a typical, junior high, Sadie Hawkins dance. Jul 13, 2011
