As fun of a roof-crack that you'll find in any part of the country. Don't let the grade fool you, it's well worth the effort. Watching someone TR this and whip outta the base of the roof is hilarious!

Getting to the roof is a harer than it looks, the gear is small and challenging, two bd#2's protect the roof perfectly though you can also get a #3 or #3.5 in there if you want. Great climb!

A 1/2 inch cam works in the finger crack. There currently is a fixed wire at the end of the finger crack with a red biner ( 4/14). In the roof I used a bd#2, #3, #2 and then a #1 where the crack turns vertical.
