This is A.K.A. Trundler's Paradise.

This route ascends the low angle ramp that cuts left to right across the face towards the western end of Ridge 6. Easy climbing but extremely loose rock and equivalently shaky pro make this a fun, adventure climb. It is not uncommon on this route to be standing on large masses of rubble piled on the ledge. I pushed off a couple of microwave-sized blocks on my way across, but there are still many left for future parties to have their way with.

The ramp ends with a short hand crack to a rubble-filled slot. Once making it out of the slot without crushing your toes, head right to find a the two bolt anchor above "Completion Backward Principle". With some creativity, it is possible to rap from here with a 60m rope. (Swing right approximately 50' down to reach an intermediate anchor.)


Start as for "Opus 73", at the base of the dirty and broken, right-facing corner. Head right across the ramp.


Standard rack.
