Just to the right of where the overlap reaches the ground, clip the first bolt and then move up and to the left. At the third bolt, move up and to the left and join Ripple and finish on anchors for Ripple. SEE COMMENT BELOW FOR MORE DETAILED INSTRUCTION.


Below and to the right of Ripple. Begins just to the right of where the overlap reaches the ground.

Locate the 1st Bolt for Ambulance Blues about 25' above where the overlap comes closest to the ground. It's above a natural "dish" as the DDM states.

Pull over the overlap near the "point" and continue up to the 1st bolt. Continue up and left past two more bolts at decent stances. Be mindful of rope slack as the ground slopes up with you and a poor belay could put you in ground fall territory. From the 3rd bolt, continue up and left to the 2nd bolt on Ripple. Finish for Ripple. ~45m

It's a good idea to locate the Ripple bolts prior to setting off on this one. (Climb as a good warm up). The Carpet Crawl bolts cross AB and can be slightly misleading for the first timer.
While the 1st bolt looks quite high, the crux moves occur lower down, pulling over and establishing yourself on the overlap. Feb 28, 2016
