The furthest east section of the Boulder Ruckle runs into Subluminal and combines the seriousness of The Ruckle with the ease of viewing and reasonable access of Subluminal. The selection of climbs on offer are rarely climbed. Escape is only possible by climbing back out, or prusiking in emergency. Guidebook page 399.
