Description 

Overcome a tough roof move left of the Body Lice slot (crux). Follow positive features straight up the slab finishing just left of a bush hanging off the top of the wall.


Location 

This area is maybe 100 yards above the boulder move on the standard Hawk Eagle Ridge approach. The slab left of The Crab should be obvious after passing the steeper roof routes low on the ridge. The base shows slight wear from climber activity. Descend a class 4 gully 30 feet up the ridge line.


Protection 

The crux roof off the deck is well-protected with an alert belayer and good finger sized cam placement. A few features offer pro on the slab above. TR can be set above the bush.
