Jeff moving beyond the notorious roof.
This is a really fun route with a crack, some face, and an overhang on really nice rock.
Start as for Geisha Girl by climbing the wide crack, then straight up to the intimidating roof (easier than it looks). Surmount the roof to the anchors.
Same as Geisha Girl, at a wide crack just right of the starting block of Bobby D's Bunny
10 bolts + 2-bolt anchor. 60M rope.
Preparing to clip before tackling roof.
Pulling the roof.

If I remember correctly, I was a bit nervous about the way the rope ran over some horizontal edges after clipping the anchors. There were a few sharp areas that I thought might give me problems. Anyone else notice this?

The roof at the end makes this 5.8 unique and one of the NRG's best in grade.

Fantastic route! In my opinion the 5.8 was right off the ground with some balancy moves early. Considering that high first bolts are the norm at the New I wasn't surprised by that, but it made the start interesting.

Long and fun. I feel that it climbs more like an easy 5.9 when compared to Geisha Girl. Amazingly fun roof. Beware! In high summer there is often an active hornets nest in the cracks above the 5th bolt.

Sweet Route! Climbs very smooth with a nice crack starting about 4 inches at the base and turning to a crimpy, balancy climb pretty much all the way to the roof. Speaking of! This roof is pretty awesome. Two nice start holds lead to a left throw, heel hook, right throw, and mantle over the top. Climb it!

Was able to get to the ground with a 55-57 meter rope today with no trouble. Guidebook says 60 meter is a must. Not so much.
