Laybacking through the wide crack crux. June 2010.

Description 

Berserker is a burly roof crack at White Rock, and there aren't too many like this, so it's worth checking out, if that's your sort of thing.

Lieback the excellent thin-hands crack in the left-facing corner to a stance below a roof. This is one of the best liebacking corners in White Rock. The roof is offwidth, confusing, strenuous, and harder than it looks (but easier than it's nominally rated- 5.11c/d), and protects well with a #4 camalot. After the roof, the climbing is much easier to the top.


Location 

Berserker starts with the obvious left-facing lieback crack to a roof crack near the right end of the ONP.


Protection 

Cams from #0.75 camalot to #4 camalot.
2-bolt anchor.

The 2nd roof is more fun than the first though barely even 5.10 in difficulty. Altogether a superb line with great pro.
