The area is shaped like an amphitheater with the Great roof on the far right and the wall ending on the left near Powder Greens. There is little room for development in this area due to the shape of the rock and the abundance of ledges breaking the cliff up.

Getting There 

Walk down the high way until you see the rock formation, walk up the boulder field heading towards the cliff.

Tom's Route 5.4 4a 12 IV 10 VD 3c  North America : Canada : ... : The Great Roof Area
This is a stunningly marvelous rock climb. Everything about it is perfect; the movement, the rock, the gear, variety, etc., etc. Absolute must do. This route was put up in 1976 by Tom Butz and the original grade was 5.1. It has been adjusted to reflect current grading practices. History note: this is also the oldest recorded first ascent in New Brunswick....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
