P1 (100ft): Start up dark, chunky rock following discontinuous cracks, angling slightly right. When the crack ends go straight up past two bolts and then angle left across the slab above, skirting the base of a large, detached and precarious looking flake. Clip a fixed pin and continue angling up and left and belay at a bolt on a ledge left of a scrawny pine tree. P2 (65ft): Climb straight up for a bit then angle right over a lower angle section to some intermittent cracks/seams leading up onto the steeper headwall above. Follow these features straight up using any gear opportunities available as there is some ledge fall potential at this point. Continue up a short, thin crack/seam to a piton and on to the clean face above passing two bolts to the top of this beautiful headwall slab. Angle left near the top to end up at the bolted anchor which is also the finish of Threadbare/Ramshackle.


30 ft. right of Ramshackle
2 raps from bolts/chains with a 60m rope will get you down.


4 protection bolts, 2 pitons, and small to medium gear (mostly nuts)
Bolts for belays
