Setting up for the final stretch of the great roof


One of the most unique boulder problems I've ever seen. It starts at the head height horizontal hand crack below the great big roof, moves up and left to the top of the right facing corner where it meets the ceiling. Slap out for the lip of the roof, traverse right to the big horn, and top out on the blunt right facing, left rising corner.


The roof. Can't miss it.


Probable three pads for this one due to the wandering nature of the climbing and the height of the top out. If you cant stick the lip of the roof, you may swing back and into a tree. Always good to have a spotter positioned there. The landing on this has been improved over time by removing pesky rocks and stumps.
