Donny A. on Triple Treat...and it is a treat...not...

Description 

Three mini-roofs make this climb an ultra classic.

Tape-up and start this climb off on a low roff, and contiue up to two more!

Really a classic, I've yet to get it clean, super-pumpy to place pro.

Location 

Middle route of Orchard Wall. Under triple roofs.

Protection 

Great pro, pumpy placements.

Try not to place gear before the crux 1st roof. A #1 camalot works well at the roof and if you placed gear before it try and backclean it or you'll get rope drag. Better know how to handjam proficiently before getting on this one.

you can use a BD 4 for the first section and walk it up. then place 2 pro under the first roof and back clean the 4. I think the first roof can take BD .5 and 1

The first roof is the crux... don't miss the small foothold on the left! After that it's a bit pumpy...

Tough getting established above the first roof.

*cough* sandbag *cough*...

my buddy broke the foot hold off the crux of this route yesterday. Have fun.

PS, I placed a 4 at the start and a 1 under the first roof. With a sling on the 1, drag wasn't a problem.

Any tips on how to get off the ground?

I tried wide stemming, chimneying the downward flared chimney, and crack climbing, but it was so burly. Springboard on the right didn't give me much trouble but on this climb I got stuck about 5 feet up when the crack got wide. Def. sandbagged.

10a, but tough for the grade. Body positioning and hand jamming. Definitely one of the best 10s at the New. The old book listed this as 5.9
