Good OW practice, if nothing else... Short fists to off-width crack beneath the start of the Ramp. Set a TR atop Lunch Rock by slinging a block or by plugging a few cams. Set your TR slightly off to one side of the crack to avoid unnecessary rope interference whilst climbing.


Directly beneath the Stairs and the Ramp lies LRL - obvious off-width just off the trail...walk past it for 50' to access the ledges that lead you to Lunch Rock proper.


Typically TR'ed (gear anchor)...could be led with gear 4-5"

A very fun lead and great fist/offwidth practice. You'll get great stares from other climbers in the area.
