The Roach, 5.10a

The premier warm-up at The Danks...


Definately not something that was just leftover! This is everyone's favorite warm-up or cool-down climb.

Big pockets, big ledges, big feet, big reaches, big rests with a big pump to boot.

You can stem if needed but this route is much tastier if done entirely on the narrow face.

Location: Upper Danks 

The Roach is located on what appears to be a detached pillar at the top of the wee hill. Faces almost directly west.


8 quickdraws.
