Move up through easy fifth class terrain (5.2), heading towards an overhang/roof about 40 feet up. No protection was placed in this section on the first ascent, but there is pro if needed. The overhang presents a strenuous challenge (5.8), but can be bypassed to the right. Continue up on steeper terrain to the base of the roof. Protection can be found under the roof on solid rock. Move right under the roof on decent handholds and pull through. A large handhold broke off on the first ascent. The rating is about 5.8 G. Some might call it 5.7, some might feel it's 5.9. Anchor from a large, wedged block 12 feet back. It is easy to extend the belay and maintain visual of your second.

Another hand hold broke off on the second ascent on lead. Pro under roof was solid thank goodness. Great route John O.!
