Starting the lip traverse

Yes, another link up. Start on Dry Lightning, which goes out the roof crack then left along the lip of the roof. Then cross Cain and turn and climb up to the Genesis anchors via Cypher 2.


Bolts. Please do not toprope off of the fixed gear at the top, use your own draws for that. If the biners on the chains look worn or do not work properly, please replace them. It's good karma.

Good endurance climb. Requires a little less then dry lighting, but still fun powerful movement.
