This climb is on a formation with four climbs on it. Look for an easy slab on the left, a crack on the right, and a steep face in the middle with two side by side sport routes. Rip off is the left of the two sport routes.

Start on the lowest band, and mantle a small ledge. Clip a bolt and continue climbing straight up clipping two more bolts. When you reach the last bolt, make a crux move left then up onto a slabby, unprotected top out with large knobs. Every move on this climb is harder than the move before, as the holds get smaller and smaller, and the rock becomes steeper and steeper. This is true until you reach the slab at the top.

Enjoyable climbing.


On the east facing side of the amphitheater. The base of this climb is located on the lower teir, so you will have to descend the approach gully in the middle of the amphitheater or rappel down Black Bawl to access this climb.


Four bolts. Bolted anchor.


Does anyone know what the two sport routes to the right of this are called? There is a second bolt line immediately to the right that follows the crack that is pictured, I would guess ~5.9 and then there is a much harder route further to the right of that with very small holds and 3(?) bolts and no anchor from what I remember.
