Below the first roof on Ounce of Perception

Description 

Fun climb. Lots of crimps and thin ledges to start. Nice big jugs higher up. Footing is tougher - hard to smear due to the rock being so weathered and smooth. Good route to throw in some finger and fist jams, heel hooks and the like. You can also climb to the roof area, traverse left and play around on the roof. It's a fun one to top out on.


Location 

Route is at Faints Roof area. Toss ropes over the roof, go down and around the trail to the left and back right to reach the belay area. Start to the right of the roof. Climb through overhangs to the right of the roof, up the face to the trees and finish on roof.


Protection 

Good trees at the top for anchoring topropes. They are a good distance from the edge, so bring long gear.
