This is located right of Memorial Daze. Follow the bolts to the chains. This route has interesting moves with an abundance of good hands and feet.


4 3/8" Rawl bolts, grade 43 cold shuts with grade 43 chain.

Where is Memorial Daze? I am assuming Ann Bay Lee is the route to the left of Ranger Danger, going up inside of the "open book" formation?

Pretty sure Memorial Daze (probably 5.6 - 5.7) is the open book climb you see right as you come up the approach trail. A 5.7 + rating would be too much for the open book.
As far as Ann Bay Lee, I am pretty sure this is the one I did, as I clipped 4 bolts up to the chains. It is just R of the arete (presumably Ranger Danger) that is just right of the open book, presumably Memorial Daze.
This area needs a topo/overhead!

So if you stay to the left of the bolts it is much easier like 5.6+/5.7-, a total jug haul with awesome feet pretty much the whole way up, with the crux being the last 2-3 feet before the chains. If you climb to the right of the bolts it is much thinner and the moves are on smaller crimps and sloping ledges, but still pretty good feet for the most part, 5.7+. 40', 4 Bolts and chains.

Crux is between the last bolt - bolt 4 of 4 - and the chains as the moves are pretty thin. I lead this route to the right of the bolts but the finish will take you left. Traversing across from the right-hand side to the chains has a few small crimps and pinches but you are there before you know it. Fun route and pretty sustained.

Ann Bey Lee is Right of the arete (Ranger Danger) and 2 routes right of where the trail meets the wall. Chains easily visible from the ground.

Seems like the first two bolts (5/16 hex head) should be replaced by something modern. They both are rusty and that design wasn't the best type of bolt for sport climbing. The route is definitely fun to climb.

I bailed off this thing. Old bolts and it looks like you could deck from 20 feet up onto some jagged rocks going to the second bolt
