Description 

p1, follows the arete right of Adam's Rib's start (the 3 star pitch). Burly face moves originally rated 5.10+ by the sandbag FA team, repeats put the grade at 5.11. Belay same as p1 Adam's Rib. p2 aka "the junkyard" was added as an after thought and crosses Adam's rib trending toward the top of pitch 1 of Falling Ross. Runout and easily avoided 10-R climbing (do p2 Adam's Rib!). p3, a thin aid line was freed by Sarni and is hard (left of Adam's rib arete).


Location 

Right of Adam's Rib, starts right off ground at corner. Drop 2 stars if considering the second pitch.


Protection 

small to small camming units, bolts.

As of December 25th, 2010 I have replaced half the bolts on Pitch 1, and finished on the 27th. Pitch 2 (The Junkyard) will have to wait for next season to be replaced. I have done Pitch 2, and the bolts are horrid (especially 1), but when they are replaced the line does not warrant an 'R' rating.
