Description

An exciting trad alternative to Planet Ron that skips the bolted face and traverses below the large roof.
Start up loose dihedral and gain stance below the roof on a sloping ledge.
A .75 camalot protects the corner stance, and a slot in the roof takes a .4 and .5 next to each other.
Bust out left on face holds below the roof and run-out (pg-13) around the lip to a good stance in the dihedral, joining and finishing on Planet Ron.
Despite the last half being bolted, there's good gear in the dihedral the entire way up.
Follower cleans the gear.

Location

start in loose dihedral, careful of loose rock near the bottom

Protection

singles from BD .3-3, maybe double finger sizes would be nice.
quickdraws optional as there are bolts on second half, but the whole route goes clean on gear.
