BETA PHOTO: Back at the Ranch and the first pitch of Meanwhile...

As a variation to the first pitch of "Meanwhile", you can do "Back At The Ranch".

The two routes share the first 3 to 4 bolts. After this, Meanwhile goes straight up, while Back At The Ranch breaks right for about 10 bolts of fun climbing. The climbing is similar to Meanwhile, although stemming opportunities make the route somewhat less continuous than Meanwhile.

Don't think this one is easier, though - some thin moves up high with poor feet make Back At The Ranch just a tad more difficult.

It shares the same anchor as Meanwhile.


14 bolts.
