Description

Start on Pine Box, till small overhang, move right under roof about 5/6ft then up face, ends on ledge about 20ft from top,

note using the holds above the overhang on Pine Box is off, using it is the #$%*?, #$%*? variation

Location

about 10 left of Congratulations

Protection

TR, its best to set rope from ledge, to access ledge, scramble up left, to ledge then move right, then up to higher ledge,

yes yet another Prunes Bechler lead......He thought he was being pretty clever with naming this Rich and Famous..... Didn't,t take much to amuse the punter.
club salute to old Prunes, may he always be encouraging us to pull down,cut loose and throw up. R.I.P Rich! Apr 12, 2012

Chez,Is that all you managed to dislocate? Could you please describe important details of Prunes ascent that day. What was the gear like? Was it a safe lead? And most importantly how much and what type of swill was consumed ,before during and after the ascent? Just the facts please! Club salute to "Prunes"!!!! Peace and fuk-nes Steve S. May 7, 2012

Great moves through the roof, and it sticks with you until you're standing on the ledge. Definitely felt a bit sandy for 11d though. Jul 10, 2012
I did this on TR going boldly where many have gone before. I say 11d Because I'm in rehab and can't climb 12a yet I can't see where Rich would've put any gear at all. Aug 14, 2012
