This line starts on a cracked face.The Busse/Burr guidebook rates this as 5.8 PG-13. You can place some small piece(s) here. It feels like an easy boulder problem so if you boulder alot there really shouldn't be a PG13 rating feels like a highball thats easy. Moves up to a balancing like rock you can place a cam here with a long sling and then pull the bulge and up to the anchor. Doesn't look like much but turns out to be a fun warm up.


NE face in the gully leading up to RIP.


only a few pieces. I used a nut for the first placement and then placed a #2 camalot up above.
