Description

Climb up using the backside of the pillar, which is easier climbing. Stem and undercling and offwidth your way up to the top for a great break. Then start up onto the 5.11 slab above to anchors.

Protection

6 bolts to anchors. This has red painted hangers to start.

Good freaking climb!

Mostly pretty easy (and fun) climbing under / through / around the detached pillars leads to harder sustained face climbing up high. The bolts are a little scary, especially at the crux, and there's potential for ledge falls in a few places.

This has two new shiny bolts in addition to the original bedframe style hangers. I didn't count, but I think there are now 8 bolts total in addition to the anchors.

I thought this was easier than Red Devil (10d) shortly to the right of this climb. I suspect that's because Red Devil's crux is a fairly height dependent boulder problem, whereas Rip It's crux is sustained technical climbing, which I'm better at. Oct 9, 2016
