Last roof before the fun is over.


Walk south along ledge, just before Vagina Envy's chimney is an overhanging face with a roof at the top. First bolt is @ 15' up on easy rock; crux is small holds and a tips crack move.


11 bolts, rap anchor

Fun route. Sustained & pumpy. Another Iso classic.

I wouldn't call this sustained; I thought it was cruxy. Nonetheless, all of the climbing on this route is super cool and the over-all experience of this route was superb. I agree that this is classic stuff.

Is it cheating if you pass the first roof on the right? If you go that way its not sustained? This is a great route.

In my opinion this is one of the best lines out here. Very fun movement and pretty sustained with a couple cruxy sections. Definitely full value. Not to be missed.

My new favorite, but boy is it ever a pump fest! Absolutely gorgeous movement required and stunning rock quality.

Excellent route on great rock. I got dive bombed twice (but not hit) by a falcon in late April. His/her nest was about 30 feet up and left from the chains. Maybe stay off of this for a few months, for your sake as well as the falcon's.

Wish we'd read this before today -- 4 pretty well grown chicks in the nest and very irritated parents. Definitely stay away from this for the next couple/few weeks.

Thanks Manny for putting up an awesome route! Excellent movement with many styles of face climbing involved! No sight of any birds and all is well with the route.
