Locate the 1st Bolt for Ambulance Blues about 25' above where the overlap comes closest to the ground. It's above a natural "dish" as the DDM states.
Pull over the overlap near the "point" and continue up to the 1st bolt. Continue up and left past two more bolts at decent stances. Be mindful of rope slack as the ground slopes up with you and a poor belay could put you in ground fall territory. From the 3rd bolt, continue up and left to the 2nd bolt on Ripple. Finish for Ripple. ~45m
It's a good idea to locate the Ripple bolts prior to setting off on this one. (Climb as a good warm up). The Carpet Crawl bolts cross AB and can be slightly misleading for the first timer.
While the 1st bolt looks quite high, the crux moves occur lower down, pulling over and establishing yourself on the overlap.
