Ruby Wall. In September, Malcolm Ives and I added a third new route to this fine wall, “Wide Sargasso Sea.” Our climb takes a direct line to the summit, staying right of Galen Rowell’s 1982 route until the summit dihedral. Eight pitches with a delicate (5.10b) crux constitute this highly enjoyable route. Descent was made to the north into the large gully bounding the face, with four rappels.
