BETA PHOTO: Reachy move on Rocket man. Continues up the face r...

Description 

Rocket Man is the right facing hanging dihedral immediately to the right of Ragged Edges. It is one of the better 5.10 routes at The Ledges. Start on a sidepull and make a couple of long moves up into the dihedral. Pop over the lip and work your way up on face holds to the right of the corner.

Location 

Just right of Ragged Edges and around the corner that is to the left of Despondency.

Protection 

Easy toprope setup from large trees above the route with webbing or static line. Tread lightly and use carpet to pad the lip to prevent erosion. See the Grand Ledge overview page for more information.
