climber under Fortis Roof

Description 

This route pulls a small roof on good holds, and then you pull through another smaller roof on better holds. Crux is puling the roof at the second bolt. After the first roof you can take a rest on a ledge before finished the easier 5.8 climbing above. This route is one of the must do's of the crag.

Location 

Third bolted route looking at the crag from the left.

Protection 

4 bolts, and depending on your comfort you can place a #1 cam between the 2nd and 3rd bolts. Ring anchors wait for you at the top.

This climb is located just right of Ne Plus Ultra.

Great climb. It has two overhanging sections (basically two quick boulder problems) and the rest is easy. I placed a #0.5 BD cam before the 1st bolt, and a #1 after the 2nd bolt. The roofs are straightforward, especially if you've already climbed it, so you can warm up on this before climbing the excellent Leading Should Feel This Way.
