Located between the Gastonian and Cornered Rats, The Imposed ascends a shallow, right-facing dihedral to a ledgy area. This is the lower portion of the same ledge used by Cornered Rats and Man Chowder. Either stop at the 2 bolt station & break this into two pitches or continue up the left leaning seam & on through the bulge. This adds another way to access the ledge system on the Red Wall and another more moderate route to this wall.


12 bolts + top & mid-anchor.

Is this the nice-looking finger crack near the left end of the crag? If so, bummer that someone felt it necessary to fully bolt what would be a G-rated gear lead. I really don't understand this (lack of) ethic.


I'm just referring to the 2nd pitch, which we reached by walking over on the ledge. Didn't do P1.

Really fun route and quite a bit harder than it looks. My crack climbing definitely felt rusty on this one.
