Rotert gets established above the roof.
Road & nearby private property MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This route starts on the two bolt optional start to Undertow, then you place a piece or two in the crack on a long sling, and pull up and left over the corner of the roof to gain the bolt line the follows the arÍte up to the Undertow anchors.

This is somewhat tough to establish above the roof but the real difficulties are climbing through the next 3 bolts or so. It is continuous and techy.


Location 

Start on Undertow, then jump left through the roof.


Protection 

Mainly bolts. Place a piece or two of gear before pulling the roof (extend it).

According to another post by Glenn, he and Mark Milligan did this just before the fire in 2002 but never named it.

Monty and Jason are both correct - I put the route up with Mark Milligan and Jason helped me with the name many years after the fact.
The route is a bit contrived, but the main goal was to protect the direct start of Undertow so people would actually climb it.
