Trad finish variations. Richard's Rift and Route ...

Description 

More of a variation to Route #6 that has been recently cleaned and is quite fun.
This route shares the first three bolts and the anchor with "Route #6". Climb past the tree, then cut right to an obvious crack and follow to the top. Traverse left to the shared anchor.

This is a great route for beginner trad leaders, as the first part is bolt-protected, and there are plenty of gear placements the rest of the climb.


Location 

Right center of Corpse Wall. There is a tree at 20 feet.


Protection 

3 bolts and gear to 3-1/2" - 4". Bring longer runners for the top.
