Description Suggest change

Ricochet starts with vertical to overhanging M5/M6 and eases off a bit with a runout section that leads to a large roof. I belayed here. The roof goes at around M7 (my second Chris went up it directly), but I am not sure of protection as I traversed easier ground to the left and belayed at a tree above, perhaps 40m with both pitches.

The line likely meets Center Route or Finch Route and continues to the top of Hallett. We did 2 more pitches and abseiled from another tree higher up due to time. It is best climbed in cold conditions as frozen turf can be used on upper part of route.

Location Suggest change

It is located on the lower Hallett buttress about 200’ left of Bullett but right of start of Center Route and Finch Route. It ascends a big, gently overhung dihedral capped with a roof.

Protection Suggest change

Standard alpine rack to #3 Camalot, and no pins were used.
