Description 

The discontinuous vertical crack that begins just as you exit and scramble down from the “corridor.” The crack begins in a left-facing corner and opens up reaching a “roof” that provides good warmup for other roofs in the area. Good gear placement with many options up to 3 inches. Save large piece or two for the uppermost vertical crack just before the anchors, which are shared with Eagles.

A good practice trad route that used to be called "Warm Up Roofer" by us.

Location 

Far right of this wall, see location route map.

Protection 

Single rack, though if you're practicing placing gear you'll want doubles of small to medium cams.
