Nice hand to finger crack easily top roped, bolt anchors. Please consider rappelling vs lowering to prevent further rope/rock damage


Gear, bolt anchors.

Is this is the right hand version of Barney Rubble? I really enjoy this route, it's a decent lead with a variety of moves. Some of the gear in the middle is a little suspect, but the tough parts protect well. I usually take (but have a few left over) a double rack of Camalots from .5 to 3 (you could also place a 4 instead of one of the 3's if you wanted) and a larger DMM offset nut or red tri-cam. The top anchor @ 45.803334,-108.588433 consists of a Eyebolt and one chain that are very far apart, if you want to top rope you'll need a couple of double length slings. Don't lower on this route, you'll hurt your rope and the rock. When you clean the anchor, it's a better pull to walk 20' or so east to the chains atop "Roof Right" and rap down there.
