Description 

Hosting only one route, The Living Conjunction, Roof Rock is a seldom visited house of pain. Shady all the time with a touch of histoplasmosis thrown in for good measure.

Getting There 

Roof Rock is on the West as you walk out from the campground past Rock Hudson and is just before you reach Dinosaur Rock. Thick brush marks the base of this east facing obvious black streaked roof line.

Once described as sporting the "single finest move in Josh", this gem of a route gets little play. It has a few things going against it: It is not on the best rock. It is a bit of a circus trying to get the thing set up so you can try it and live to tell about it.It has defeated some of the mightiest climbers of the day.It is particularly good at draining blood from its suitors.But... it is hard. It is funky, and it is a big roof. What more do you need?...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
