This route is just left of Cocaine Rodeo. If you just go to the first set of bolts, it goes at 5.10a (and is called Acid Mother Temple). Continue through the Face Melter roof and the steep climbing above for the full "experience" as Jimmy Hendrix would say.


This route is just left of Cocaine Rodeo, and is the furthest right in this area to go through the roof.


Lots of bolts

the bottom was all filler but the top was outstanding

Priceless! Beautiful RRG-esque jugs out the roof to a surprise.

This route was started by Mike Snyder in 2003 and never finished. The entire Face Melter Roof was my creation down to the base of the roof. I walked away after pulling off the largest flake I had ever removed with nothing more than the claw of my hammer (nearly decapitating poor Darth Vader in the process). Some nice person chopped my fixed line about 15 feet up shortly thereafter making continued work problematic. I left it alone and Aaron decided to finish it in 2009 adding the 5.10a beginning and thus offering two distinctly different outings.

Outstanding, but I found this a little tougher to flash/onsight than cocaine rodeo. The top is thin, and kind of tough to read.
