Start at the lowest point of left rib of Rock of Ages.

P1 (5.8): Start o a slabby ramp with chert knobs down low and continue on excellent featured limestone to a pleasant ledge and a belay.

P2 (5.7): Follow amazing large chert knobs, trending up and right to a belay just below the top of the ridge. Shares the top anchor with "Shakin'".


Start at the bottom of the blunt brow that forms the left edge of Rock of Ages. See the beta picture.


Pitch 1: 12 bolts. Pitch 2: 8 bolts. Chain anchors at pitch 1 and sport anchors at pitch 2. 60 meter rope and two rappels to descend.

IMO the second pitch is a well protected 5.6, good lead for a new leader. Jul 15, 2018
