Description 

This is a good two pitch route on the SSE face of Ranch Hand Dome. It connects a variety of features with fun, knob, face climbing reminscent at times of the Flatirons.

P1. Ascend a left-facing, jagged dihedral of sorts (described as a left-angling crack). There is a bulge move ~35 feet up (5.6). Angle right on a nice face to connect with a small fist-size crack. The original belay is 150' up. 5.7.

P2. Continue up on nice but somewhat runout face for ~50'. Lasso the horn, then angle slight left onto easy but gritty slab that mellows as you reach 3rd class terrain, 5.6 PG-13, 150'.

Walk off northward, and downclimb a ramp system (4th class) on the right. Hike down the forested slopes back to the base. Apparently, there are some old bolts somewhere up there, too.


Location 

This is on the right side of The Ranch Hand. It starts off a ledge above a low-angled slab where you hop a big dead log onto the ledge. Currently, it appears to be the 2nd from the right of the routes here.


Protection 

A rack to a #3 Camalot works.
