Yup, it's a big muddy cove.

Start as for Fluffiest Bunny. Once on the MT (Minor Traverse) Ledge, traverse left along the ledge and into the large muddy cove capped by the namesake roof of Roofy Business. At the left end of the cove, just before it goes from head height to knee height, climb up through the roof and onto a narrow in cut ledge (crux). Follow this ledge left until it crosses Beginners Slab then follow this line to the top. This fun mixed line has a few bolts and takes reasonable trad gear. The 5.6 lead up will make the 5.9 crux all the more exciting. Leaders, be sure to protect your second both during and immediately after the crux as a run out here could see your second taking an ugly swing.


Standard Rack, be sure to have some mid sized cams for the crux.
