Locate the obvious line of bolts on the steep face just left of a short left facing corner formed by a 25ft pedestal. This pedestal of rock is the start of Ramshackle. Crank past the bolts (11-) to lower angle rock and discontinuous cracks, finding gear placements where you can. Traverse right under a small overhang then straight up on easier terrain past a piton and a final bolt to gain a belay ledge with a bolted anchor. This is the same belay as for the first pitch of Ramshackle. (100ft). Pitch two goes up to a bolt, angles right to another bolt, then continues straight up the beautiful thin headwall slab passed a couple more bolts. It's possible to supplement the bolts with an occasional thin nut placement if you look hard enough. (5.10, 65ft). Rock is excellent.


Mostly bolts (1st pitch:6, 2nd pitch:4) with occasional gear placements (small nuts/cams).

Decent: 2 single rope rappels from bolted anchors. 60 meter rope required.
