Description

Off to the right of the gravel parking lot at the First Buttress is the obvious and impressive 'Big Roof". Great bouldering abounds here and several difficult routes start here as well. This is a great place to hang evidenced by the abundance of fire soot mixed in with the sand at the base. Several people I know have found perfectly intact arrow heads in the dirt below the Big Roof. Obviously climbers weren't the first folks to dig hanging here. You can easily imagine native hunting groups swapping stories and passing the peace pipe. In fact at times you can almost still feel them there. Under the Big Roof you will finds the routes; Bronco Billys and Guanos Dias as well as the imposing and difficult roof routes; Welcome to China and Double Time at Sue's Place. Fabulous climbing particularly when it is scorching hot out or raining. Fun in the dry and shady climbing.
