The Above Beta is NOT CORRECT. Beta from the O'Grady Book or DDM for the Backside needs to be taken with a grain of salt as neither is up to date or often all that accurate. The Photo Topo's of the backside pasted in MtnProj (colored lines) are the best right now.

Carpet Crawl is the first route you encounter after dropping down off the "Ripple Ledge". Locate the first bolt near where the overlap peters out under the overhanging tree branches. Climb up to the first bolt and make interesting mantle moves slightly left and up. Continue up through the 2nd and 3rd Bolts of Ambulance Blues. From here, CC proceeds up and RIGHT. CC received and retro awhile back. While you can see and climb the bolt line (newer bolts), the retro line really doesn't follow the natural line of Carpet Crawl. If you look carefully, you'll see a natural rib moving up and right headed towards IC near a flake with a small cactus. Proceed up and right. The bolt line is harder while staying more right on the natural line is easier but the bolts may be hard to clip. Some small gear might be possible before you continue to the top or join the upper IC bolts and finish. Feb 28, 2016

Thank you for the correction. I was trying to help out by posting info for people who did not have the book. I did not realize the book was wrong in this case. Mar 6, 2016

Matt is correct re following the rib for the original route. After clipping the Ambulance Blues bolt(s) follow the rib to the flake, which takes finger-sized gear. Pink or red tri-cams are ideal. From the flake run it out straight to the top and build a belay. Jul 19, 2018
