DescriptionRusted Rapture is a stunning pitch. From start to finish this varied line serves up everything from bouldery face climbing to splitter cracks, as well as, the classic roof traverse. Its one of the better basalt pitches around at the grade, but there is not a ton of standard jamming on it. Rap down to suspended boulder at 90', fixed belay.
The first 15' of climbing off the belay is fantastic and bouldery, as you follow an arching seam with just enough holds to keep it in the V0 range. Once you start plugging gear in the thin crack, be sure to take advantage of the best placements when you see them. Continue up the thin crack past several boulder problems to a break at mid height. Enjoy the next 35' of twin finger cracks which is like a really featured cousin of Torpedo at the Forks.
Though the roof may look intimidating at first glance, take the time to enjoy it, because the traverse and turning the roof add up to be about 5.9 climbing, and the exposure is heavenly... For a basalt canyon anyway.
