Ribonucleic Convulsions features fun moves, and steep rock. However, it traverses a bit too much to be classic.

Scamble up a low angle slab and clip the first two bolts you encounter. From here, traverse right and follow the rightmost line of bolts.

The route is fairly sustained, with a definite crux at the lip of the roof, which is followed by easier, but pumpy finish.

Would be much better if it had an independent start.


The far right route in the Jehovah Wall.


Quickdraws, and a 60 meter rope.

With the addition of deceptacon, the Ribo-con line is changing. Routes change over time as people discover new paths, but the iron cross move is a classic crux move.

Historically, Ribocon climbs through and to the left of the bolt line.
The crux was the long iron-cross move to the large jug then into the sloppy heuco.
