Description

Unexpectedly thin climbing leads directly into the offwidth crux. This leads to a ledge with a bush. A chimney section above the ledge leads to some really cool moves out and into a fist crack.

The technical climbing ends on top of the fist crack. Either belay here, or continue on up 4th or low 5th for another 50' or so to the top.

Location

Rat Race is located in the obvious dihedral just right of Unholy Buttress and left of the hand crack that starts Vertebrae.

To descend walk off left.

Protection

A standard rock rack to #3. Bring two #3s, one for the lower crux and the second for the fist crack. Nothing larger is really necessary, though you could probably find a place for a #4.
