Start below the overhanging dihedral that splits the Great Roof. Slab up and left to a right facing corner. Follow this feature to a bolt. Step right across the face aiming for a delicate flake. Pass another bolt as you trend up and right. Belay at double bolts just below the impressive dihedral.


There is an impressive roof feature that traverses for about 200 feet across the middle of the cliff. The single obvious point of weakness through this impressive barrier is an overhanging, left facing dihedral. The first ascentionists intended this line to be the approach pitch to this awesome looking feature.


Small to medium cams. Sliding nuts were used on the first ascent.

A great dyno! This is the best route under the roof in my opinion.

Probably the best way to access the anchors below P2 of RONA
