Description 

Way Rambo is a great little cliff with about a dozen climbs and something for everyone. It seems to get decent shade until around noon, some climbs are in the sun sooner, some later. Classics at the cliff are Slice and Dice (12), Way Rambo (12-), the Layaway Plan (11+), Serrator Crack (11), and Blue Sun (10).

Getting There 

Take Beef Basin Road away from the main road, past the Bridger Jack camping pull off and continue for a few miles until you pass a fence and cattle guard. A few hundred yards past this is a well-maintained road that angles back to the northeast. Follow this to another junction and continue back the way you came (north) until you get to a gate and cattle guard. Park here and walk through the gate (private land - keep a low profile). 100 paces down the road is an excellent trail on the right. Take this up to the cliff (trail arrives at Rochambeau).

The faded plaque hints at the name of a video game ninja from the early 90s. When spelled with an "s", many of us will remember the Ginsu knives that were hawked on infomercials during the late 70s and 80s, said to cut through anything. Ginzu's catch phrase from the game Captain Commando was "I'll slice 'em, I'll dice 'em." Some easy-ish ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah

I found a ring about halfway up the approach trail to Way Rambo on 9/15/2012. It was next to 1/2" vinyl tape, also pictured below. If it's yours, shoot me a PM.
