Description 

Climb the roof protected by a bolt and some pretty burly moves. Bring some small to medium cams for above the roof. The rock is dirty and dusty above the roof. Climb up and left to easier ground. I belayed and rappelled from the large tree which grows from the canyon floor and is close to the wall directly above this route.


Location 

This route is located on the Cathedral about halfway in between Devil Tree and Swamp Cooler. It is easily identifiable by a 3 foot roof protected with a bolt and about a foot from the bolt, a lost arrow piton.


Protection 

Quickdraws, small to medium cams.

I led a variation to Painted Bird yesterday 7-25-08. Instead of going straight over the roof, after clipping the bolt, go left and then up and climb to the left of a large hanging block, "The Painted Turd". Bring a few small cams (finger size and smaller) to protect. Probably 5.11b
