RAT runs left of the long slab in the middle of the crag. It begins on very easy terrain and grows continuously more interesting as you approach the anchor. RAT also gets rather sequence dependent and cruxy as you get closer to the anchors. The climbing is similar to J-Tree climbing near the end, so use your feet and pull gently.


This is left of the slab running up to an arching finish several clips before the anchor.


Quickdraws only with a double bolt anchor at the top.

Very well graded climbing to anchors last 2 bolts. Fun climb over all.
A little carefull pulling on the crimpers they will disappear with high traffic!
