Description [Suggest Change]
This is an old route, but I wanted to include it here, since it is one of the longest free climbs in the range.
Location [Suggest Change]
The obvious long buttress on Raid, looking up the valley from Ambush Peak. The route starts about 50 feet to the right, from the lowest point of the rock, near the lake.
Protection [Suggest Change]
When we did it back in 1972, there were long run-outs, but with modern cams, I've been told the pro. is adequate. No bolts were placed on the 1st ascent.
