This problem climbs the North end of the Penny Boulder. Sit start with a right hand undercling and left on a thin pinch. Do a crux first move to a left hand edge. Then go right to the arete, and continue slapping your way up. Top out on the North face slab.


This is on the North side of the Penny Pitch Boulder.


The rock behind you looks dangerous. Use a mindful spotter and at least one pad, and you should be safe.

I have no idea the name of the problem or who did the first ascent, but I was shown this problem and did it before 2006. I don't recall what year exactly, and I know several people did it before me. While I like the name Razor's Edge, I don't think keeping it as Razor's Edge would be appropriate. Sorry; it is hard to find unclimbed lines at Rotary, but they do exist.

Good addition to the database.

Thanks, Elijah, for the info. I changed the name to be more generic. Hopefully this route sees more attention now that it's in the database!
