Description:

Striking line not to be passed up. Hands to off-width with holds on the ragged edges. The climb can be climbed in 2 pitches, start at the base of the perfect crack splitting the Ragged Edges wall. From the bolts, the first part can be toproped, but its a shame to miss the second pitch if you have the gear! Walk off to your right or walk left 100' to a small tree at the top of Tonto and make one single rope rappel to the floor.

5 out of 5 stars Great route, but ...

full on 5.8, or maybe 5.9. That 2nd pitch is wide hands and slick coming off the belay, but has several fun moves. Used a #5 and #6 on the 2nd pitch. Has 1 pink tri-cam placement outside the crack.

4 out of 5 stars Fun

Led 2nd pitch. Leaving the belay was the crux. Seconded 1st pitch which was really fun.
