P.J Adamson freeing the Great Roof 5.11+

Must contact CFB Gagetown Range Control MORE INFO >>>


This is the short finger roof crack on the left side of the great roof. This crack eats cams and pulling the lip is tricky for aid climbing. There is still a fixed pin at the lip. After the lip the climbing get easier and most people can free climb to the top with the use of the trees. Make for a great first aid climb.

When Steve Adamson climbed this route free in 1993, he redubbed it "Go ahead make my Day" but the name never caught on...
