BETA PHOTO: The Layback

Description 

The name says it all. Layback the crack. A fun and challenging route. Usually done as a top rope problem, but could be lead if someone was so inclined.
  • RCM&W #27, p.37.

Location 

To the right of The Squeeze lies a roof with a thin crack.

Protection 

Small stuff to protect the crack. Standard top rope setup.
