Description [Suggest Change]
"This route features some of the best quartzite in the canyon," according to the Ruckman guide. Ribbon in the Sky begins on a ledge, a few feet to the left of a scrub oak that marks the start of the Whip-Poor-Will Crack. Climb the blocky face to the first bolt. Take advantage of any gear placements as you finess your way up the beautifully featured face, past five more bolts on this long, involved pitch. A single 60m can be used to rap from the slings atop 12 oz. Curl.
Location [Suggest Change]
Ribbon in the Sky is on the main Beer Belly face, waaay the hell up there.
Protection [Suggest Change]
Bring along a standard single rack; the guidebook recommends at least one 2.5" cam, and quickdraws for the bolts. Scramble south, then downclimb into the prominent chimney to access the sling anchor above 12 oz. Curl.
