Description Suggest change

The classic Rollerball (5.10b) is found here and climbs an off-balance lieback down low to a splitter hand crack out a sizeable roof as is Rollercoaster (5.11b) a long and varied sport climb that lies just to the left. 

  • Morning shade and afternoon sun.

Getting There Suggest change

The typical approach is made from the apex of the western HVCG loop, although surprisingly easy access can be made from the west by parking near Dihedral Rock. 

Once the rock is in sight a rough trail leads up through blocks to a relatively level base. 

Descent from the top of the rock can be made by descending the broken northeast end or rapping from bolts atop the route Rollercoaster. 

  • The typical approach takes 10-20 minutes from the car.
