Description 

Ragged Top is a full trad route with numerous ways to reach the anchor right of Star Light & Star Bright. Climb up your pick of cracks that spider there way up past small ledges. There can be quite a bit of loose rock depending on your route so climb carefully. Continue up to a anchor with webbing on it that can be easy seen from the bottom and rap the route.

Location 

Follow the approach trail up and right along the base of the cliff. This climb is located at the top of the scree scramble 30' right of Star Light. Look for the anchor and pick what ever crack you want to get there.

Protection 

Gear to 1", 1 Bolt+ 1 Stopper Anchor, and one rusty ass pin.

This is a contender for the worst 5.9 in the state. Most of the route is falling down. don't look at it the wrong way or down it will come.

It's a full choss solo until 15 ft before the anchor. Don't expect any gear capable of holding a fall, or a wet diaper for that matter. It's probably the worst established route ever.
