Description

Start up the steep slab which eases up after the second bolt, then follow the crack through two overhanging bulges using hand/fist jams and some awkward feet (crux). The anchor is a few feet left of the crack after an easy face move or two.

Watch out for rodent droppings on the ledge above the second bulge. The inside of the crack is pretty abrasive; consider taping up.

Location

This is the right of two bolted lines between R.A.M.M. and Richter Scale.

Protection

6 or 7 bolts (?) to a two-bolt anchor. It can also be led on gear (I used a green C3, a medium stopper, and a few cams in the 0.5-#3" range).

Filthy climb - tons of rodent droppings on both ledges.

The start of the climb is steep face then two strenuous overhangs on large holds. Jan 2, 2016

Yes, lots of shit all over the ledges, but there is some fun movement getting over the overhangs. Wouldn't do it again, but not a bad climb if you avoid the guano. Jan 15, 2018
