Entering the roof traverse. Melissa Haltuch, 2000.

Description 

Great and sustained climbing in the hand/finger crack inside an orange right-facing corner. Laybacks, some stemming, and traverse through the roof in the end. Crack accepts solid pro. Beautiful looking route.

Location 

From Honeymooner's Ladders take a bit of an upstream hike well past the wall with Legacy. Follow the wall until you get to a big roof. The route is located inside an orange corner around the buttress just past the roof.

Protection 

Medium nuts and TCU's, cams up to #2. Bolted anchor.

Fun! Mostly laybacking and stemming. Really no jamming at all.

Bring a #1 and #2 and lots of small gear. If leading this again, I would actually bring my microstoppers and ball nuts.
