Description

Rip Cord is the bolted line on the far left side of the Buzzard Wall . Start like you would for Buzzard Bait, but instead of going out on the slab face stay on the arete/left face. Continue left to an obvious crack weakness and then head up and out on to the face with Buzzard Bait. Finish on Buzzard Bait.

This line is the actual intention for the first two bolts that everyone clips for Buzzard Bait. The book lists it as 5.9 but I and several others think it is harder than that.

6 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor

Really fun move around the third bolt. Sharp rock, but an interesting and challenging route. Feb 10, 2014
