Brooke starting the route.


This route starts with a high step from a boulder on the ground. Following up and slightly left into a right-facing dihedral, one finds steeper terrain with a placeable crack. Towards the top, step left (watch for loose rock) and finish over a tiny bulge to the top.


This is about as far south as you want to go at Duncan's Ridge. It is the furthest south route on the wall with bouldering starts, what I call the ".9 wall".


For TR, wrap a boulder with 25-30 feet of webbing.
For a lead, small to medium nuts and/or a couple small cams.

If you're belaying, you might want to wear your helmet. There's a huge flake about a third of the way up on the left just waiting.... Be careful.
