Climbing just above the crux.
This route climbs up an obvious crack, around the left edge of the roof that Kor Crack surmounts. The crux is the section immediately below the roof. Above, follow an easy corner to a ledge. Either continue up the same crack (harder) or step right to an easier finish.
This was John Reppy's first FA at Ragged. An attempt to commemorate this on its 50th anniversary was turned back by cold weather. Not many climbers can go back to their FAs 50 years later.
An obvious crack system just left of Bushy Groove.
Standard traprock rack - a big cam might help on the right side finish.

A real grunt-fest through the chimney section. My second tried climbing the face instead and finally gave up and crawled inside the chimney muttering expletives.

I don't know - I had a hard time protecting the crux. (They say there was a chockstone to sling for the crux pro - either it's gone or I managed to miss it.) Good climb, maybe not for new 5.7 leaders.

No the chockstone is still there--it's hard to tell that you can sling it until you get above it. I thought slinging the chockstone was key for keeping it "G"
