Alex Weber leading up after the ramp

Description 

The first half of this route goes up a right leaning ramp. There's a crack on the left that takes good gear (0.75s). The ramp is awkward, but good sideways foot-jams can be used. The second half of the route goes straight up various cracks and ledges. The crux is probably a couple laybacks with smearing feet to gain solid rests. Watch for some kitty-litter near the last ledge.

Location 

Look for the right leaning ramp that leads to a vertical set of cracks.

Protection 

Gear to 2", use trees for top anchor.
