Alto Ray climbs the L side of the roof- fun climb!


Look for a small roof with a hand crack spliting the left side. Easier terrain leads to a large ledge with anchors. Stop her and descend via the large Merolius hangers or continue left to a right facing corner which dumps you atop Blackline

Super fun pitch on its own, and it also serves as the main approach for Kabooki Direct, a fantastic mixed climb.
