The crux is pulling through the roof and finding the holds. This is a great route for new leaders. Intimidating (very short) roof with jug holds. Great 5.7 warm up. Clip 4 bolts on easy 5.4 climbing, then clip 1 more through the roof to the anchors.


The small roof directly to the right of the big roof. You can't miss the big roof. This is the last bolted route before the trail begins to ascend the hill on the right side of the crag.


5 bolts and ring anchors.

Good climb, needs an alpine draw on the 2nd to last bolt! Tough to find holds on the roof unless you traverse right.
