The vertically challenged traverse right from Cradle of the Deep while taller climbers may wish to jump to the first good hold on the overhanging arete. Hard moves off the ground flow into more relaxed climbing to the top. Originally done on gear.


To the right of Portside and left of Cradle of the Deep. The left end/arete of the boulder.


4 bolts. Independent anchors as of 2010.

I love this route for some odd reason. Do it almost every time I go to the Ranch. So Fun!

I think you meant to say it's to the left of Portside and to the right of CotD
