Runout to the lip.
  • Some crags in this area are closed 1 February to 31 July: MORE INFO >>>
  • Climbing areas reopened after flood MORE INFO >>>

  • Description 

    From the top of Ridge One, traverse right for 30 feet (5.9). Place a #2 Camalot and head for a sharp point out right, then go straight up and over the apex of the large overhang. One can sling the point to reduce the runout and also place a small cam behind a flake at the lip. After pulling the lip, continue to the summit or build an anchor in a horizontal slot just over the lip with large cams.


    This is on the North end of Ridge One.


    The traverse eats cams of all sizes. A #3 or #3.5 Camalot is useful behind the first horn. A gray Alien protected the first move off the ground going around the corner but was then pulled to avoid drag.
