BETA PHOTO: Riorap's west face.


Riorap's vertical, west face is littered with irregularly shaped nodules and pockets. Once vetted, the quality is quite solid, and the landings are good as well. Potential for other lines also exists.

Getting There 

From the parking area, head southeast for about five minutes. It lies in between Daylight and White Noise. Reference the page map for a more precise location.
