Description 

This route climbs on a smaller dome just right of Ripple Tower. A hard, steep start past the first bolt with one or two big throws leads to gradually easier climbing near the top. Pumpy rather than technical - long moves to big holds. Originally given 10c by the FA but upgraded by later guidebook authors on the basis of being quite the sandbag at that grade.

Location 

Leftmost route of the ledge at Ripple Tower.

Protection 

5 bolts. Rap anchors on top.
