40m, 2 pitches. Climb starts 20ft East of Koo Koo.
Pitch 1 - 4c: Climb the large right-trending crack on good undercuts to a bulge. Pass this on good holds and continue to the roof. Traverse right under the frightening block and climb up to the break. Difficult nuts at the belay.
Pitch 2: Gain the face above the break and climb the corner cracks to a roof. Move left via a ledge on the arete and climb a second set of cracks to a second roof. Move right to the original crack and exit.
WARNING: Route is called RIP for a good reason. A lot of loose blocks, especially at the top-out. Tread carefully and test everything before loading it.

Pete took a 20 footer after a nut popped at the bulge on pitch 1. I then led this pitch....a steep 5a in my opinion. Pete got back on the sharp end for 2nd pitch. A good line, worth a couple of stars.

Been up this as an HVS - this time as an E1. Final corner quite tricky, I thought.

Big fall circa 10 metres from the traverse after the steep bulge on pitch 1. Was reseating a poor wire and next thing I'm falling, so my foothold must have collapsed. Belayer lifted a couple of metres into the air. What do I do now, he says. Gently lower yourself to the ground and then gently lower me please, I asked looking up at the single wire that had held my fall (another had ripped [not extended enough] and the remainder were too low). After the excitement, I tried to reclimb, but wanted to get some more gear in on the bulge and was getting pumped and was more nervy. Day was getting late, so removed lower gear and pulled ropes, and went off to climb Kittiwake instead to escape. There's a number 7 wire and quickdraw left in the route for grabs.

Loose in some places, but good holds and plenty of gear. Care needed on the top out.
