Rags to Riches at the roof

Description 

Stellar route, one of the best in Maryland. Begin 10' left of Air Show, climb this fantastic corner crack system up to the roof. At the roof, follow the crack out and step left, reaching up to either a ledge or a jug, depending on your ape index. Power up to the top. Pumpy route, a solid lead that takes mostly medium to big gear. A rack of #0.5 to #5 camalots with some long slings is about perfect. (Indy)


Location 

This is the dihedral/corner near the center of the cliff.


Protection 

Trad protection (see description). Fixed Top anchors, hidden from view from above, visible to the leader when they are topping out.
