DescriptionClimb a short vertical face past one bolt, pass a few feet of easy ground and climb another short vertical section past a bolt. Continue up the fun slab (crux) past three more bolts to undercling flakes (some fragile sections, optional small cams) and easier climbing. Finish at the 'Rewritten' anchor (mussy hooks).
Note that the first short vertical section has a right (of bolt) and left (of bolt) variation. Left is a bit sequential, right is much easier.
This route was initially called 'Slippery Slope,' was renamed to 'Ripples' due to an already existing route with the same name and then was (once again) renamed to 'Ripples Revisited' for the same reason.
