Upper Ramp rappel route.  From the base of Chockstone Chimney, hike up to the right side of the slab by a tree, then downclimb the slab to a ledge. Traverse left on the ledge to a bolted rappel anchor. <span class='mptextHighlight'>This anchor was installed on August 21, 2006 to replace the anchor on the wobbling tree.</span> Rappel 65' to a stance with bolts and chains. <br /> <br />A second 95' rappel takes you to Vertigo Ledge.  Follow Vertigo Ledge until it intersects the West Face trail.

The new bolted rappel anchor at the top of the Upper Ramp. Installed 8/21/06. <br /> <br />Traverse in from climber's left to avoid using the tree to downclimb. <br /> <br />The rope pull is clean with little friction.  The rope only contacts the rock at the edge of the dropoff (where this photo was taken). <br /> <br />The old tree anchor is just to the right.

The new bolted rappel anchor at the top of the Upper Ramp. Installed 8/21/06.

Traverse in from climber's left to avoid using the tree to downclimb.

The rope pull is clean with little friction. The rope only contacts the rock at the edge of the dropoff (where this photo was taken).

The old tree anchor is just to the right.
