DescriptionWink Van Ripple is a really nice little slab line.
This is listed on MP as a variation to "No Bolt," but, having cleaned it off recently, it really goes as an independent line and is worthy of its own page. This may be the hardest route on this small section of cliff. There are several small holds but none are very good.
The lichen has been scrubbed, but it's still dusty and could use more scrubbing. The mossy bottom in current conditions (dank, muggy July) is rather slick.
LocationStart left of the tree and right of the flake of no bolt. Use the nice rail/ripple for you hands and a short, vertical seam for your feet, then smear gently upward.
You will pass a bolt hole on your right during your tenuous journey upward.
ProtectionToprope this using the anchors for Rip Van Winkle.
