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: The summit is one of the best place in WV to drink a beer and watch the sun set!

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: 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.
