Eric getting funky in the sustained section of Ron...


This is a funky but fun route. Look for the obvious up and left leaning dihedral. The start is often a bit wet and slimy.

Make some easy moves to get to the first bolt. Start moving up and left. Get inventive to move through the next few bolts. Sustained funkness gets you to the anchors.


Towards the right side of the cliff. Look for the bolts in the left facing dihedral and the slime trail at the start.


5 bolts to a two bolt anchor.

I've got to put a plug in for this route, and I'm probably over-rating it at 3 stars.... Sure, it's got a slimy section down low (and yes, we're talking slime!) but the route has a really nice flow to it once you get past the one dirty section.
