  • Description 

    This is a great variation for the Shortoff enthusiasts. Its basicly a boulder problem in the sky, but none the less worth getting on if you want to add some spice to the original Maginot Line.

    Climb the first two pitches of Maginot line up to the belay below the huge roof. Look up, thats where you're going.

    Belay from the alcove just below the roof. Start up the blocky section and then into the obvious seam, get some solid gear in the corner of the roof. Reach out to a positive hold where you can clip up your rope in the center of the overhang. Depending on your height, reach out, cut feet and mantle out. No more than 4 or 5 hard moves, but awesome exposure and position.

    Location 

    At the end of the 2nd pitch of Maginot Line, instead of going right-- strike up the center of the roof line.

    Protection 

    Typical NC rack.
