Description 

The Roof Area of the Quarry is home to a variety of fairly long vertical to slightly overhanging routes as well as several that breach the massive roof system which hangs overhead. Routes here range in difficulty from 5.11b-5.13a with most in the 5.12 range.

Recommended routes here include Delirious (5.11b), Nostalgia (5.11c), American Dream (5.11d), Leviathan (5.11d), Swank Nostalgia (5.12a), Vendetta (5.12a), Triple Trouble (5.12b), Hanging by a Thread (5.12c), The Zone (5.12c), Trepanation (5.12c), False Alarm (5.12d), Mojo (5.13a) and The Ultimate (5.13a).

Getting There 

Most easily approached from below via the good trail that leads to the (e) Right of the Roof Area and walking left. It's also possible to hike up the trail at Slab City's right end and then head right past the (c) Left of the Roof Area.

A hard stand up move at the 2nd bolt starts off the tricky opening section. Crimpy moves and reaches make this a sustained climb. All the moves seem easier than the nearby Culture Shock but it may be a more challenging experience overall. Fun climbing throughout.The extension, called Swank Nostalgia (5.12a), follows 10 more bolts over multiple bulges and checks in at 12a....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
