Placing pro higher on the route

Description 

A pleasant climb with an alpine-like feel.

Up a slight left facing corner, then up a right rising ramp. Up and traverse ledges left to a corner, then up cracks and the corner, through a small overhang section to top out. Rope drag can be problematic on this climb. Breaking it up into two pitches may even be prudent.

An alternative to the start, which is similarly difficult, is to the right up some blocky terrain where it joins just below the ramp. This would help eliminate some rope drag issues as well.

Location 

On the right end of the cliff. You'll notice the right-rising ramp most likely

Protection 

Long runners helpful. Good on passive pro. A few antiquated soft pitons can be found here too. Best not to trust them...
