Kirk workin' towards the crux (redpoint, FA).

"You unlock this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension - ... a dimension of mind." 

Climb a short slab past one bolt to the base of the roof. Move right through two bolts to the crux and ascend the dihedral. Step right onto the prow, move up and left using unique holds. Traverse left and face climb the left side of the large roof.


First route on the leftmost roof system. Just left of Freedom Fries.


12 bolts and some change for the 2 bolt anchor. Use long slings on the 8th and 9th bolts to minimize drag.

Very fun climb. Route finding seem to be the demise of my onsight attempt. Can't wait to get back and tick off the rest the routes here.

The upper headwall was very tricky for me. Seems to be essential to traverse low then get on the arete ASAP.
