Description

Just right of Ragged Old Flag. Second to last climb before reaching the "Xin"ladder/platform you will see this mostly bolted line. Stick clip the first bolt for the initial boulder problem. Connect flakes and positive handholds to lower angled terrain which leads to a nice stance below the steepening face. Pull through this second crux using unique, limestone like holds and then a gas-ton to a fractured rail. Enjoy jugs on easier terrain and the nice grippy rock above. The 3 cams listed below will tame the run out above the well protected cruxes.

Protection

8 bolts, 0.75", 0.5", 0.4" cams

This one was especially difficult to grade. It felt 5.12 my first couple attempts but once you figure out what you're aiming for it seemed more like 5.11-

Hope some others might give it a whirl and chime in. No matter what the grade is, it's a highly enjoyable route with unique features for sure! Sep 28, 2015

I think the first impression is the best measure of a grade.

I'm glad you mentioned it, and we'll see what others think. Sep 28, 2015

Agreed John. I always thought ratings should be based on the onsight, but other climbers have disagreed with that notion. As long as it's consistent with the area I suppose. Oct 1, 2015
