Starting off Printerboy ledge, far left side...
1) The first pitch starts in and moves up the dihedral (5.9) clipping a pin or two for fun and placing gear when possible. As the crack pinches out, look for the bolt hangers, you might not see all of them, but they are up there. Some might say its run-out, some will think it's cool..The climbing is straightforward and typical Monitor easy (10a). Relax, climb, clip a bolt once an a while and placing gear. Eventually you will end up at a three bolt semi hanging belay.
2) Pitch two moves up the face,off to the right, pass two bolts an arriving at Rasta-Ledge. Short pitch
3) The final pitch of Rasta-Man follows the bolt to the left. (The obvious bolt line is Dazed & Confused.)
The following I cannot recall at all...Maybe I just blocked it out, but I know Craig did it (per notes) and I think it was with his brother Cliff that finished off this pitch. Per my notes, from my personal hand drawn guide(circa 1998) it states the following....From Rasta ledge, look up and to the left for a bolt. As Craig Jirka said. Quote "Clip the bolt, don't look back and turn the roof at the top.(5.10+)..Have fun." end Quote..I assume he put gear in at the roof. . So there you have it, If you've ever seen that bolt off to the left of Rasta-ledge, now you know...Rasta-Man
