this is in the squirrel's alley area. it is named in the Mt. Rushmore national memorial Cilber's Guide( Vernon R. Phinney)i think it is number 15 in the south seas map but no beta is given so it is hard to tell.

Comments: Getting to the chains at the top of the first pitch of Ragged Edges is 5.9- and not really part of the rout. Climb the finger crack to the left side of the sloping ledge, head up and the crux comes around the only bolt on the rout. the rout finishes in one long pitch that ends at the top of the formation. I remember the climbing above the crux to be a bit runout but trivial and quit secure.

Comments: This isn't the crux... getting to the chains at the top of the first pitch of Ragged Edges is 5.9- and not really part of the rout. from the ledge you break out left and the crux come around the only bolt on the rout. the rout finishes in one long pitch that ends at the top of the formation.

Comments: well, if you look at the line in the picture it seems to be a contrived direct line below a bolted anchor. while the line I put up wonders following a natural path of least resistance threw a set of ramps and brakes left at the top.

Ps: since when does a set of bolts and a top-rope send constitute a FFA any way?

Comments: thank you to the two unknown guys who took the better part of there day pulling those death blocks down and cleaning this route. this might actually be worth climbing now!

Comments: if some one added a bolt to the start this would be just another OK 5.9+, but the run out start and sandbagged rating( 5.8 in the falcons guide)give this route some real character. Fun climb.
