At the anchors

Description 

Climb the ramp next to the large OW crack, laybacking and slabbing your way to the top.

Location 

20 feet to the right of Report to Sickbay, big obivious ramp. Rap off the bolt anchors. I saw webbing on a tree a bit higher past the anchors, but there was ice in the chimney leading up to it so I don't know it's condition right now.

Protection 

Nothing smaller than a #3. I used a 2 #3's and a #4. Bolted anchors at the top.

Alternately this route can be started in a hand to finger crack on the face just to the climbers right of the start described here at 5.7.

Fun climb with much harder options to TR on the face afterwards. 5.7 variation can be sewn up to conservative 5.7 climber standards with a 1, 0.75, 4, 3, and 5. There are placements for #3 and #4 in the two wide sections but they are kind of rattly.

great climb! more like 60 ft in length, the layback on this climb is rad and easy going. Highly recommended if everything else is dry!
