RRT# 244
(between "Dr Death" and "Sister #2")
. so this route is near the South / Left end of the cliff - (not the right end) .

The historic "official" grade is 5.6
The historic Start description was:
"Two right facing corners 12’ up about 50’ from the south end of the crag."The historic route description was:
"Up slab and step around left, passing first corner. Diagonal left for 4th and 5th bolt....exiting left for easier way or go straight up (5.6) to ramp. Step to right, and up prominent left facing corner to clump of trees with rap/belay station out to the left.
V1: From ramp, go up corners below a slanted face at top. Go up this to rap/belay station."

Actually there's almost three different bolt lines on or near the route, which finish at three different bolt+chain anchors ...
(1) Above the first corner, one goes diagonal left, then up to the left-most R-facing corner at the top.
(2) Another goes directly up from the first corner, to finish at the middle R-facing corner at the top.
(3) A third line starts about 6 feet north of the first corner and goes up roughly directly to the another R-facing corner below the tree at the top.

All have some interesting moves.

Since the third is a completely independent line, perhaps the third should be identified here on MountainProject as a separate route. Painted by its top anchor are the words "Know the Code" -- so perhaps here on MountainProject we could call it "Know the Code Right". On the other hand, at its bottom these words are crossed out: "Dr Death" -- so perhaps we should call it "Dr Death Left".
