Approaching the roof on Veins of Glory.

Description 

Veins of Glory chases a pair of quartz intrusions to a large roof and is the first bolted route left of Milky Way. Interesting, steep climbing up directional holds and side pulls off the ground lead to a solid and well-protected crux at the roof. Finding your way around the roof and getting established on the slab above is a delicate affair-- the holds seem to totally disappear just when you most need them. Once on the slab, smear up easier terrain to the anchor.


Protection 

7 bolts to chains. The first bolt is slightly high, and I have seen people place a supplemental piece. Better to get a spot and stay on the rock.
