  • Description 

    Sweet little route, fun roof at the top.

    Location 

    This route starts just right of "One Hand Clapping"...step it up the slab to the daunting wave like roof. Some loose flakes deter you from going all ape but it is solid where it needs to be.

    Rap off or continue a thin 10a pitch to the first pitch anchors of One Hand.

    Protection 

    Standard rack. Bolted anchors at the top.

    When I did this I skipped the wide pieces and placed a small tcu in the middle of the face to the right of the wide crack. Excellent Climb.

    What a fun climb! Protects very well, for those who want to sew up the wide section, bring a #5 and you'll be fine. #00 master cam can go in horizontal next to it as well. Crux protects VERY well, really no reason not to go for it. Again, excellent climb with a very fun sequence through the crux. Bridwell 10b :)
