Rock Climbing Photo: Inspired by an Idiot

Inspired by an Idiot V6 7A  GA : Rocktown : Helicopter Area
Awesome roof problem that climbs out the middle of Idiot Roof. Climb jugs that lead to smaller holds as you near the lip. Find some feet, and make it over the lip! The beta is tricky and interesting-there are lots of ways to make it though! A strong core helps.Most people drop from the jug 2 feet or so above the lip. It can also be topped out by establishing yourself above the lip, traversing a bit left (around the corner) and climbing some 5-easy terrain to the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in GA
