Fun roof moves (crux) lead to a killer thin hand crack. As of March 2008, you need to build a gear anchor and rap off a route to the (climber's) right.

Named after the salmon-colored lichen under the roof.


Left side of obvious double roof.


Small cams to #2 Camalot. If you want, you can fiddle in a nut or two on the opening slab.

A great route! Slabby start, easier-than-it-looks roof, fun thin hands crack that is just off-vertical enough not to be too pumpy. Tiers on the right was equally good IMHO.

Really fun. When I hear "5.10a roof" I think jugs, but that is not what this is. It felt pretty challenging for the grade.

You can use the anchors on the right at the top of Tiers, it works fine although the rope drag is kind of a bummer.

This get's my vote for one of the best 10a cracks in the state.
