Ed Webster on first ascent of Adam's Rib 2nd pitch
Generic name aside, the Right Section is sometimes referred to in a general sense as the Face Routes or Face Section of Granite Mountain. This area runs from Falling Ross all the way to Easy Chair on the right end of the mountain. The "face" designation comes because of the big crackless section of face climbs that runs from Cheiu Hoi over to Grody Coyote.
Take the climber's trail all the way to the Front Porch. You can rack up there and then head over to the right to reach your objective. If you're planning on climbing on the right side all day, it might be easier to take your stuff with you and leave it over there for easier retrieval.

Falling Ross is an excellent natural line that offers pretty good protection, but some mental edge as well. It may feel quite challenging if you're just stepping up to the grade.P1: 150 feet, 5.9+Start just right of the Flying Buttress where it intersects the main wall (same corner as for Coke Bottle). Climb up and right, taking a sort of "stairstep" flake on the right that turns into a crack system. Continue as it goes vertical (rock gets slick!) and make a burly reach to the left.
