<< The Eternal Optimist < Strike | Energy Crisis > The Ramp >>
The wall left of Energy Crisis. Powerful climbing with some long reaches and a difficult exit from the top of the first pitch. Protection is just about adequate. Start beneath the left-hand of two wide cracks left of The Ramp.
1) 5b, 28m. Climb thin slabs, past a quartz spike, to reach the overhang - many slings required. Make a hard move right and climb small ledges to gain the belay on The Ramp.
2) 5a, 25m. Finish up The Ramp P2.
