Crossing over to the doorknob hold

Description 

Named Rip Hide because it was sent when swell was big and it sliced through my hands and feet when I tried it first without tape. Because it is a DWS route I am giving a detailed beta filled description that for some would ruin the onsight.

Traverse in from the left or climb from the water into the central cove big enough to stand in the mouth of it. From the cove traverse up and further right to the main wide crack in the roof. This section of the roof is surprisingly easy with huge jugs elbow deep in the offwidth roof crack. Find a solid doorknob sized hold at the lip with your right and move your left hand to the base of a mini arÍte at the lip. The next move pulling the lip is the crux. Move your right hand to either the crack (looks easier but is probably a slightly harder move) or on the next good placement on the arÍte. These moves are all fairly laybacking with your left foot plastered on the left side of the lip. Shift a little further left and reach far with your left hand for good holds and top out.

This route is probably the safest top out route being directly in the center of the cave you would land exactly where the cliff jumpers do.


Location 

Center-left of the cave pulling straight over the roof.
