jugs out roof


This is a fun route. Great climb to warm up or cool down on! Buckets to the face, which stays on you all the way to the shuts. Difficult to clean from the top; a second needs to follow to retrieve draws.

The route veers up and right around a roof/bulge and finishes on a vertical face.


In Bedrock proper; an alcove just to the right of The Shooting Gallery. The climb starts on a ledge; boulder start to the beginning of a bulging roof. Look for heavily pocketed, bulging face.


Bolted; Shares a common hanger with the climb "Fred Flintstone". Two shuts.

Be aware if you fall while going for the clip after the crux (going around the corner) it is likely you will deck on to the ledge to the right (with the tree). Recommend an attentive belay. Also, cleaning this route while lowering down was leagues more difficult than the climb itself. Would recommend having a second climber clean as he climbs, also would prevent any dangerous swings on toprope. A super fun climb though when not dealing with drama!!
