Rampart Roof.

Description 

Start low in middle of boulder and work your way up and out roof to good holds at the lip. Two variations exist.

Wow, this boulder is impressive! It sits about 50ft down the talus from Many Pines Buttress and sticks out like a sore thumb. It's huge and has a beautiful roof with lots of features.

Location 

Hike to Many Pines Buttress along the rampart. From Callipigeanous and Michael's hike down into talus for approx: 50ft. You can't miss it.

Protection 

Bring all the pads, and have your best spotters.

wow cool. this is the huge roof in the talus below cali and flatus. somehow we(dlfa)stumbled upon this(1980) and threw a toprope on it.
after we did it,we then told pete c. about it and he of course claimed he had done it years ago on a tr.somethings never change.

Cool Steve, how hard did you guys think it was? We plan to just boulder it, but it's a tall one.

remo, its been a long time and we probably only did it that once. I think we figured out 2 ways out the roof. both probably 5.12a/b.We definitly were tooooo scared to boulder it out,its tall and some funky moves .Looks like you are finding some cool problems in the talus.Keep lookin ,I,ll bet there is more out there. steve s

Thanks Steve, nice work on the TR accent. From the ground it looks a lot harder, but it's also intimidating.

Bouldered this last week. The right arete is about V4 as Steve S said. If the line deserves it's own name, I called it "Summer Lovin'" Left arete goes at V2ish. Still a project going direct up the center...
