<< Strike < Fail Safe  |  The Ramp > The Gauntlet >>


A strenuous route with a fine sustained first pitch. Start beneath the right-hand of two wide cracks a little left of The Ramp. Summon all the energy you can, and make sure you've paid your bills; you don't want the power to be cut off before the belay.
1) 6a, 25m. Climb the crack direct to belay on The Ramp. A lot harder than this brief description suggests.
2) 5c, 28m. From the right-hand end on the ledge, go right into a hanging groove. Go up and move left to a thin crack. This leads to an easier groove on the left which is followed to the top.
