Location

3rd route right from the left arete.

Description

Start on right facing 6ft tall flake, lean left, bit hard first move but well protected. Follow boltline. Crux is where route intersecs with Ramp Of Death, slabby well protected with 2 bolts. Last move is pretty hard if you go straight up/left'ish (I didn't use the 2ft flake, see if you can do that) and clip to the right. I tested the flake and it seems good, but hate to see it come off. Might have your belayer stand aside.

I had to put the anchors on the right because the block is loose at the top of the route.

Great 5.10a lead for short people.

Bolted: 5/24/14 Michael Endrizzi

Prefer no drytooling here. Drytooling destroys routes. Tradition is to use web anchors and trad gear
if you really need to drytool. Bolts are for sport climbers. Let's save these climbs for YOUR kids. Thanks. Dreez

Protection

7 bolts, well protected for short people. Had a 5'3" person lead it.

Climbed this the other day. Nice route! It is a little confusing because there was a bolt with a cloth through it, and another bolt a few feet to the right. Does anyone know if the cloth is a warning about that bolt? Also, I recommend that in honor of the 5'3" clipping tester, the name of this route be changed to a pun involving the clipper's name and the most famous pitch on Everest. Oh yeah, my partner said that some wasps were building in the drill hole at the top by the anchors. Clip cautiously. Jul 11, 2014

Yeah, I forgot to pull the cloth off. Bolt is good - pull the cloth. Or I can do it when I get back there. Jul 12, 2014

Well the dry toolers decided to hack this route up. Suggestion: I think Sigma has some cool moves on it, try hacking on it for a change. May 25, 2016
