Chris working the roof.


Climb fingers to hands with a #3 Camalot past the roof. There are anchors right above roof. It looks like you could keep going to a possible second set of anchors higher up.


This is a great route on solid rock with an excellent roof!


The route is on the prow of the buttress going through a 6 foot roof.

Does anybody know what this route goes at to the top. It looks like it gets a little wide and blocky for the next pitch or two. There is a bulge with 2 options, wide left or thin(hands?) right, probably 4th pitch.

You probably saw the bolt/sling that is 30 feet past the existing anchor. I had heard that it originally went to there, but not to the top, but they decided to lower anchors to where the good rock ends.
