Description

Named, as this was Paul Ross's 500th first ascent.
Ranging from many in the UK to New Hampshire, Maine, Nevada, Min, Quebec, Morocco,and now the south western States. His first FA was in 1954. Many thanks to the team from Salt Lake. The climb is located at the back of the slabs on a previously unclimbed area with many more objectives. See approach.

P1)Climb into the crack in the very obvious corner,this is protected with cams to a bolt where the crack closes. From the bolt climb left of it on no more than dimples ,until a leap can be made to good holds on the right.Continue from here up flakes to double anchors.100' 5.11-.
P2)From belay move up to the right towards the slim crack groove up to the right to large block belays.50'5.5.
P3)Move into the indefinate crack and passed 2/3 bolts to double anchors at the summit.150'5.8+R

Rap route.
