Description

Start in the dihedral below the roof, as shown in Nick's photo. According to Swartling and Mayer, exit the roof to the right ... but there is no gear out that way. Alternatively, step left onto the big shelf (easy, great gear) or follow the crack slightly left (not the greatest gear).

Cross easy ledges to the upper dihedral.

The upper dihedral is the crux, especially the last two moves.

The crux sews up with a couple of nuts and a 1/4" cam.

Location

Located directly below Ramsay's Pinnacle.

I took over this page from someone else, and the 5.7 rating is theirs. I thought this felt like a 5.8, myself. Nov 2, 2015

It's rated 5.7 in Swartling's guide as well. I'm not surprised by that....hee hee! Nov 2, 2015
