As you rap/lower down off Snow Crash, you see this itty bitty roof (ruff) that draws the eye. Unfortunately, the first half of the pitch...well...sucks, but it improves dramatically as you get under the tiny roof and pull it. Ruff.

It's probably more fun to do this as a TR after you run up Snow Crash.


This starts just left of Snow Crash...it shares the same start but diverges after 10 feet.


TR or fingers to #3 Camalot. There is not much worthwhile pro for the 1st half.

Is this route the small (12 inch) roof to the left, or the larger (4 ft) roof that forms the corner of the arete of Snow Crash? I'd say the larger roof goes at 10a or so. Has it been done previously?

This route is fun but contains a lot of loose rock. The crack on the right side of the roof provides some hand jams, but it is not perfect hands.
