Heading for the light on Frank's Roof (V3), Tramwa...

Remember to fill out a wilderness permit, even if climbing for the day! MORE INFO >>>


Start sitting in the back of the alcove with hands matched on a right-facing flake and rail out to the lip using creative body positioning to a juggy lip encounter and easy climbing above.

A spotter is good as you near the lip to keep you off the dead snag behind the problem.


Far right side of the NE face, and starting way back in a low alcove behind a downed tree.


pads, spotter

watch your head on the dead log behind the roof.. our party smacked our heads multiple times, leading to some funny, but serious times. Also for Franks Roof, you can do a v5 variation if you continue to traverse left once you've reached the lip. the Lip dulls out to slopers, then back to sharp crimps. go past the slopers and up the smallish crimps just right of "The Terminator". a fun little pumpfest!
