Comments: Excellent pitch! (2 pitches?) If only it would get climbed more and some of the lichen would get scrubbed off. Even still, I highly recommend it.

After the dicey talus pitch of T2, you'll be on a ramp. Look for a pocket in the wall, then go up and right over the roof to big jugs. Then aim for the obvious hand crack in a small roof, and climb on to the top!

Comments: This climb is incredibly boring. How does this get three stars compared to other three star routes like Ant's Line and Bonnie's Roof? It is about 15' of about 5.8, followed by lots of uninteresting easy face climbing. My personal recommendation, don't bother.

Comments: Granted, I hung at each bolt on my way up this but, I will say I thought the bolt placements were okay. It's known as a spicy route, and sometimes spicy routes are exciting when you want something... spicy. I was able to work halfway up to the first bolt and hop off back on to the ledge to get my confidence up. So I guess what I want to say is, I don't think the bolting should be changed. But then again, I'm a touron from out of state.

Comments: Did the direct version by accident. Whoops. Otherwise it was awesome and I definitely recommend it. DW calls it 5.10a PG-R. Pull solid moves up and left from the roof, after clipping the fixed pin. But you don't get gear in for a little while. I think a fall would be big but still safe.

Comments: Awesome climb. In my opinion deserves more than the single asterisk in the Piche guide. Definitely do the direct start. The cracks are so much fun.

Comments: Meh, we had no problem "on-sighting" the descent. Was my first BIG alpine route over 1,000' too. Just stay skier's right as much as possible when coming down the Kain, and constantly be checking your partner's ideas for where to go ("hm, maybe we should go this way instead").

Otherwise, awesome route. This little New England climber in the big Bugaboos had his mind blown. The setting and exposure were incredible.

Comments: From the top of the 4th class after the third pitch, I climbed underneath the overhanging chimney. Started on the left side of the face, clipped a fix pin, and traversed right on good but sketchy holds, with a nasty fall potention (R?). Then up into the chimney which wasn't as hard as it looked.

From the top of the chimney you can go right up a short 3"-4" crack and you will shortly be at a bolted rap station. Or...you can do what we did and find a way more or less straight up, pulling 5.8 h... more >>

Comments: Amazing climb. Absolutely the hardest "5.7" I have ever done. I will give it 5.8, even though I have definitely cruised easier 5.9s.

With that said, this is my favorite climb at Ragged so far. Definitely need some legit crack technique. It'll make you work for it, that's for sure. Saved my #4 for the top, but didn't end up using it.

Comments: Some gear trickery. Also, lead at night which could have contributed to gear difficultly. Awesome climb though!

Comments: In a moment of beautiful coincidence, an icicle, that I hit with my helmet, dropped and cut across the bridge of my nose. Contributing my own blood to this line.

Comments: What a fun climb! Gorgeous plastic ice went all the way up the back and right of the gully until the top where it switched to a 8 foot curtain on the left. From other people's descriptions, I must have gotten some pretty fat conditions. Definitely no harder than 3+.

Comments: Had no problems with gear. Dropped big nut behind the jug after the crux. Small cam after that.

Comments: Great excuse to use a #4 Camalot. Fits perfectly in the notch over the roof. Fun to throw for the horizontal from the edge of the roof with an incredibly safe fall onto your big ol cam.

Comments: This climb was fantastic! Walking up to it, I turned the corner and the first sight of it stopped me in my tracks. What a gorgeous line! Even better, there was no one in sight. Good gear and fun stemming the whole way.

Comments: Did the Williams's second pitch. I went up from the pine tree and then moved a little left at an overhang. Went up trending left and then hand traversed into the normal belay alcove. Not sure if I did it right. Overall, my impression was that the third pitch was short and fun but the first two pitches did not excite me. Also, I was hung over.

Comments: For the variation, bring some small gear! Definitely recommend this, makes the Directissima even more directissima-ey.
