Description Suggest change

SPORTY!!!!! but very very cool ramp. Stay on the ramp to be pure, don't wus out and go to side ledges and climb up.

This used to be a bit runout, but by popular demand I bolt-protected the cruxes. 8 bolts total. So maybe I should call it "Ramp Of Pain" now. I think this is one of the best 5.9's in the state.

This route reminds me a bit of Drilling Experience in Red Wing but a lot longer on the slab.

Prefer no drytooling here. Drytooling destroys routes. Tradition is to use web anchors and trad gear
if you really need to drytool. Bolts are for sport climbers. Let's save these climbs for YOUR kids. Thanks. Dreez

Location Suggest change

Left hand side of Diag wall, about 50 feet from left edge in diehedral. Dripping water at start.

Protection Suggest change

9 Bolts

If you want to climb the original spicy runout climb, then don't clip the 2nd last bolt by the drill hole. I use to protect the runout with 1 runner in the drill hole(the thicker the better) and/or 1 blue alien/Metolius cam
