This roof is located about 10 yards South of the Piano Boulder on the ridge. Nearly facing due West is this juggy overhanging short crack. Mostly face climbing on monster jugs, but possible to set a great hand jam or two. To make this a little stiffer start five feet left and traverse on jugs to a butt scraping start and then launch into the line, the higher the feet the more the pump.


A pad and spotter are nice.

This is a great problem for beginners and it definitely has a lot of variations. Heel hooks look cool.

Starting far left, I think was easier b/c it got you to actally start with some foot holds...other than just campusing the first hold or two in the center. Deff V0/1.
