BETA PHOTO: Route topo for the Russian Vault, at Capen Park. ...
Start on the left facing flake that is located 10 feet left of the start of Mister Easy. Climb this and the slab above until you mantel onto a ledge beneath a large overhang. Step 5 feet left and then climb up into the vault. Angle back to the right on giant holds until reaching the top.
It is possible to bypass the crux of this route by moving right on the aforementioned ledge and then climbing easier rock to the top.
Climbs the left side of the tallest part of the cliff, 10 feet right of Mister Easy. See topo
Customarily top roped. The top anchor consists of bolts and trees. Long anchor cord recommended.

Closer to 40 feet than 75 feet. Huge wedged block that can result in some interesting moves through the steepest section.
