Sharp crack to roof, traverse left under roof then exit up past the pine. Short route. This was rated 10a in the Northwest Passage guidebook but it felt more like 5.8 being able to get into fairly easy positions to place gear...maybe I was tall enough to be able to do so. Good moves in the beginning crack and pulling up past the small pine.


The route is located to the left of Ragnarock, the bolted route farthest left on Upper Fifth Canyon Left.


Singles from BD C4 0.3 to 3 should be ok or small rack to 3 inches. Build an anchor far back from the ledge to bring your second up.

Fun little route. 5.8 sounds right, this is not even close to 5.10!
