Jerad Friedrichs on Ruckus.


Two lines to the left of Never Believe, this short route packs a powerful punch. Climb the overhanging right facing dihedral, then move up left and up to the ledge to the anchors. The crux revolves around a thin, funky move that gives many people trouble. Good footwork is the key here. The rest of the route is enjoyable overhanging climbing, but quite short.


5 bolts, two bolt anchor.

Knee bar over the first bulge after the crimps works sweet for clipping. I loved having to mantle the second bulge to reach the anchors.. very bouldery.
