Climbers should be aware that fixed draws are only on the EXTENSIONS for the most part at the Roost these days. The harder stuff (America's Most Wanted, etc) still have chains/project draws, but the .11s are clip your own now. May 15, 2012

Anybody know what the extension of Bubbalicious into Glory Daze is? Apr 29, 2018
This description about avoiding crowds here is not accurate. Roost is always crowded. Jun 8, 2018
^and destined to be more so as every local and visiting like/doubletap seeking climber and photographer advertises it continually on instagram and elsewhere. A crag with only a handful of starts does not really need all that hype. I guess the couple of pennies per like is worth it? Jun 8, 2018
