Description

Climb the most prominent ridge between the Armadillo and the Flatiron. Route begins on the wet slabs up and climbers right from the start of the armadillo, hugging the right side of the canyon until you can begin ascending the ridge.

The crux pitch follows the ridgeline over terrifying hollow rock. It can be climbed at 5.5, but expect to make harder moves to avoid loose rock. Don't bother placing gear, it won't hold you. Airy, exposed, vegatated.

Location

The most prominent ridgeline between the armadillo and flatiron.

Protection

Light alpine rock rack

Definitely a Bob Baribeau climb from back in the day. I will see if I can dig out the official route name. This area is known as the Black Gullies Aug 3, 2016
