Fred Beckey at the start of The Offering.


Easy climbing leads to roof pulling on somewhat positive holds. Make a long reach up to the next hold over the roof, don't fall the last bolt is a long way down. I used a #4 camalot below the roof, to protect those moves. It's still not over once you get over the roof.


Main route on prominent corner with small roof system. To the right of Don't Take Yer Guns to Town.


five bolts.

Okay climb; the finish is the most exciting part.

Short and not particularly interesting except for the final overhung move (or two) to the anchors. The (new-ish?) 5.8 around the corner to the right is a better warmup.
