The Rambler is an awesome slab climb, characterized by low angle climbing on friction and small flakes/edges. Like many slab climbs, the climbing is quite runout much of the time.

Follow the obvious line of bolts, with occasional trad gear thrown in. The fifth pitch traverses right under the overhang, and then continues up and right.


The climb is located just to the left of Shaky Flakes, and is the furthest left climb under the massive arch that dominates the wall. Follow the line of bolts. Rappel the route to descend.


Small to 3/4" + quickdraws.

It really is brilliant. Originally and from the ground it seems a bit too close to Shakey Flakes but it turns out to be plenty independent and the best of all those routes on that apron that I have done. Reasonable "R" but not truly dangerous as I recall doing 5.10 some distance above pro, but nothing exceptionally horrendous, yet best not to fall.
