Frost on the traverse section during the FA. The s...


This is a cool route that climbs an unlikely-looking dead vertical face just right of Out of the Blank/aka the Ramp. The start is much harder than it first appears and is the route's crux. However, it is a safe route and well worth a go.

Climb the barely-there start to a good hold and clip the first bolt. This is reasonable to do with or without a stick clip. Continue up the steep and grippy wall on well spaced but reasonable holds to the 4th bolt. From here the climb follows a crack/rail out left past gear and then up to the last bolt. Move a ways left at the last bolt and mantel straight up onto the small belay stance of Jeep's route. The mantel is a bit nerve wracking but not too hard if you keep your wits about you.

Either continue up the "...into the Blank" or rap.


Just right of "Out of The Blue and Into The Blank". Looks for the gray-colored bolts.


A couple finger size cams and draws.
