Climb trends right on finger ledges to an undercling roof and a convenient ramp up to the top. Cool in the hot weather, can be chimneyed with the opposite wall for an easier climb.
Direct variation (5.11) goes directly up to the undercling roof


In the Great Chimney area behind the Great Flake.


Bolted TR anchor setup from above by hopping across gaps and careful downclimbing.

good fun to do laps up and down (not using the chimney) to the last jug before the roof.

FOUND 10/18/15 - Stopper nut placed in the crack on the top of the roof. If you left/lost it, contact me with a description (brand, size, biner color) and I'll be happy to return it (especially in person for more climbing!) Thanks, Tim, for showing me this area; great training ground for new climbers!
