The crux is definitely down low pulling the small roof onto the ramp. Once on the ramp it is easy ground for the majority of the route until the short vertical face for two moves to a big ledge.


This is the obvious left leaning ramp which can be seen on washboard wall from the main trail.


Gear is pretty solid even though it it is a little sandy and green in places. Bring mostly hands to small fist sizes. Maybe a single #4 would be nice. Build a gear anchor on the ledge or traverse left 15 feet to a set of chains.

Getting over that first ledge onto the wall isn't too bad if you're tall. One short member of our group needed a boost, but from then on it was cake. My brain doesn't care for this kind of climb - crawling up the ramp with a wall on your right trying to push you off. A couple moves higher up keeps it exciting. We used the anchors as well. Still a good climb and easily protected. May 1, 2012
