BETA PHOTO: The finger crack, into Ripper anchors

Description 

Climb the finger crack to the ledge and then head up on jugs and then traverse into the top half of Ripper, bring a #2 BD cam to protect the traverse.

FA Note: I've been eyeing this little finger crack just left of Ripper for a couple years, and finally decided to try it. Grabbed a rack and went for it ground up, onsight. Sent it first try, and managed to dig out a couple pieces of gear. Gear past the crack is thin and tricky to place (placed from the ledge). Top half is runout, but mostly big jugs. So, in short: it's runout, it's dirty, and it's a tad scary. I don't plan to change any of that, as it was done for fun on a whim, and isn't worth more work than that. If anyone else wants to do something with it, go ahead. It is fun climbing for what its worth.
