Description

The Roost has at least 6 bolted routes from 5.7-5.11 up to 70' in length. It gets afternoon sun.

Getting There

It is 20 minutes North of Transmitter Tower. Look for a big white face on the lowest of 3 towers. Scamble up a brushy gully then onto a big ledge to the right.

Per Hansen Wendlandt: there is a trail that starts just west of Split Rock or a trail from Split to Transmitter has a section that veers left. Either way, be careful with the rogue cairn as you get closer to the crag. When you are standing on a flat block of rock, do not go up and right (which eventually leads you under a boulder), but stay low and straight-left, until the actual trail leads up to the crag.

To save a lot of frustration... There is a trail that starts just west of Split Rock, or the trail from Split to Transmitter has a section that veers left. Either way, be careful with the rogue cairn as you get closer to the crag. When you are standing on a flat block of rock, do not go up and right (which eventually leads you under a boulder), but stay low and straight-left, until the actual trail leads up to the crag.
