Me (camhead) on Roof of Death (aka Carebear Crack)...

South side crags access issue. MORE INFO >>>


This is a very intimidating roof crack that splits the center of the Hanger Cave. Although the huge underling/jam crack is the defining feature of the route, the bad landing, hard moves, sketchy pro, and seeping rock at and just above the initial roof are what keep most people off this route.


This is the super-obvious roof crack in the "Airplane Hanger" cave, at the far left end of the crag.


cams up to 4 camalot, slings. Bolted anchor.
