Description 

On the left side of the West face of Ralston Roost is a series of what look like hard roofs. Just left of those is an expanse of clean, featured slab with the occasional crack running through it. Head up the easy slab start and aim to the left of the roofs, sneaking past on rock that never gets steep or more difficult than 5.6. If you have a 60m rope, you'll have to simulclimb or break out a belay near the summit ridge. End at a two bolt cold shut anchor and climb above that to the summit.

Protection 

Trad rack with small cams.
