DescriptionStart up two thin cracks with some face climbing and move right just below the first small roof into the obvious long finger crack. Continue up the crack through a second roof. The crack changes to tight hands above the roof.
LocationRiptide is the first crack to the climbers right (west) of Blue Wind. Begin from the ground below Ed's Jam, or approach from the ramp to the west (class 3) and build a belay on the ledge. You can rap the route with two ropes (140 to the ledge, 180 feet to the ground) or top out after the second reaches the anchor. Take care to avoid the rubble above if topping out. You can then rap with a single rope in the Bend West area or walk off in either direction.
