This route was done at about the time that our government instituted the "Big Bailout" plan. Proof that Laissez Faire economics may not be the best policy, lest it lead to this sort of thing again.

Despite the slabby appearance from the ground, this climb has some pretty good features. Climb the greenish colored slab past some cool moves to a difficult undercling flake at the 3rd bolt. Undercling and lieback out right and up past another bolt to the "Ramp" ledge. Place a directional cam (.75camelot) and sling it very long, then move right to lower off of Laissez Faire anchors.


Just left of "Laissez Faire", and just right of the poplar tree that leans against the wall.


4 bolts to ledge, .75 camelot directional and long slings.
