Description

To the left of Right Rib on the same face. Lower face has a bolt ~12 up ... felt harder than 5.7, looks like there may have been some breakage. Climb face to horizontal, then up to small roof. Clear roof to the left, clip bolt and climb to the top.

Location

Left of Right Rib

Protection

2 bolts + gear. Same top anchors as Right Rib

I'm not sure why a bolt was added at the start as there is a natural line that is really excellent about 15 ft. to the right with a delicate flake with adequate gear opportunity--as long as one is careful not to pull too hard or step on the flake. Fun climb with lots of runout on easy terrain. Best done with a 70 meter in a single 200 ft. pitch. A second pitch of less than 200 ft gets one to the top with a rap off the back and easy descent trail. Alternate start may be harder than 5.7. Mar 12, 2016

Three total bolts that I know of for this route. One more above the roof up another 40ft or so. Feb 5, 2016

Walk off the back or double-rope rappel (we didn't make the ground with a 70m). Mar 21, 2014
