A wild pitch for 5.7... Make sure you have 2-3 sling ready to tie off knobs for pro above the roof. You should definitely link this one into the Prow for a great 5.10 link-up.

Didn't believe this was 5.7 until I climbed it. Solid jug on the roof and a heel hook get you over. Crux actually came before the roof for me, but I stemmed between this and the left-facing crack to the right. I'd recommend Hard Up as a better variation.

A fun route. "Hard Up" is a better start.

Very fun, perfect for a first-ever roof move! Harder than 5.7 if you're only 5'0" and have to throw for the (out-of-reach) knob and then hang one-handed before pulling it. Awesome!!

And yes, 'Hard Up' is a better start.

I climbed this as a warm-up with an experienced partner, but the whole time I was climbing I couldn't stop thinking how this would be an awesome climb to take a first timer on.

The improbable, yet technically very easy roof, to the puzzle of knobs above make this one that would surely hook even the most skeptical of n00bs on the sport!

I thought this was a standout climb for the grade.
