One of the cleaner routes at Fiscal Cliff, Truck Ram climbs the far left golden face on this half of Fiscal Cliff.

The crux is all in figuring out the beginning. A boulder problem with lots of options puts you above a small lip with easier but pleasant climbing to the top.


On the upriver half of Fiscal Cliff, this is the leftmost route. Start on an overhanging arete, and continue up the gold face.


5 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

Funky start. I climbed it a few times, and it seemed like the best way was to climb the arete and reach right to clip. This route is pretty clean and solid.

My alternate shorty beta for the start moves right of the bolt line and includes yet another undercling! I thought this move was kind of fun.

Nice to have a 25cm draw on bolt 2.
