A really fun route through the intimidating roofs just to the right of "Mandrill." Climb easily up the dirty chimney past some loose stuff on the face to the right side of the roof system, aiming for a bolt. Clip the bolt and pull through the roof on BIG holds. 2 bolt anchor up and left (if you don't protect after pulling through the crux, your second will take a big swing if they blow it after unclipping the bolt).


Look for a dirty chimney below the right side of the roof system just to the right of the "Mandrill, Cooler Sacrifice" area. Start here.


Small rack protects the easy stuff, 1 bolt for the buisness section.
