Description [Suggest Change]

Rarely traveled, mossy in spots, but actually not half bad (just about a quarter bad, really). Walk up a layback ramp/crack past a bolt, pull some easy moves and clip another bolt, then it actually becomes fun with 25' of 5" crack. Use small face holds or practice your 5.7 offwidth moves. It's actually a nice jaunt if you can handle a healthy serving of moss, and definitely my recommended approach to Babble-On.

Location [Suggest Change]

This is the first route you see as you arrive at the aretes. It starts at a very wide crack/ramp to the right of the trail as you turn towards the Boardwalk.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Two draws, and #3, 4, and 5 cam.
If you didn't bring a #5, you can bump the #4 up to a solid .75, then place the #4 tipped out later. Optional crappy #3 also.
