About to pull the roof on the Left Hand Oop.

The leftmost climb on the Alley Oop Boulder. Start up a 4th class gully to a ramp. Here comes the fun part. Pull the roof on small finger jams/holds. A couple of moves and you're on top.

TR. My climbing guide says that this climb was once lead bolted. Looks like am did some re-engineering of this rock.

I'm not sure if I have the correct original start. May be a little to the right of what I did when I climbed it.

Actually Alley Oop was the first route on the rock, which is why we called this one lefthand oop
