Crux Roof of Eagle's Gift
Your help needed to keep this crag open! MORE INFO >>>

Description 

An awesome route with thin slab/face climbing plus a small roof.
Start up a slab trending slightly left past bolts and some small ledges to base of roof. Pull over the roof to an alcove and move right to an airy bolt anchor around corner. 165' of rope will just get you back to the ground.


Location 

After Crankenstein below the huge roof.


Protection 

A bolted route. If you are timid bring a .75 camalot to protect a runout below the roof.

Pretty uneventful climbing up until the roof, then pure glory. I don't know about 5.9+, no way near as hard as wheaties.

Depends whether you get the hand jam at the crux or not imo. It's easy with the hand jam, quite hard and long moves without!
