I seem to remember a crazy steep move at the end of the ramp.

exciting severely steep exit move, tho some chossy bits to get up to that, up a cool ramp. FYI, the bolted anchor to climber's left atop The Ayatollah has no rap rings or chains. there's another bolted rap anchor with chains further left
