Crappy ramp, scrappy crux

The top is tough for short people!

Some of the biners on the quickdraws are nearly worn through (most noticeably on the last draw before the anchors because lots of people whip on this. I changed out a biner at the chains that may have snapped if shock loaded. If you climb this awesome route, switch out one of the bad biners with a good one if you can spare it.

the biners are in pretty good shape right now. the crux biner and a few other are steel so they should last a while
