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.

Protection

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

One can link P1 and P2 without too significant rope drag with a single 70m. One can also rap to the base of Shakin with one 70m rope, though there is only 4m of extra rope. So enjoyable, we did it twice! Oct 29, 2018
