Description"Tuck and Roll" is a second pitch above "All Tuckered Out." At your entrance into the South Seas climbing area, it can be seen at the sign in as a large, sweeping fin high on the sky line to the east, above an off-vertical face titled "All Tuckered Out." It is to the right of the larger gully and starts ~85 feet up, above the anchors of "All Tuckered Out."
It starts behind the anchors of "All Tuckered Out," and has fifteen to twenty feet at the start which contain the crux of the climb. The remaining portion of the route is 5.8 along the edge/arete of the fin.
This route was not bolted to be an extension of "All Tuckered Out." Attempting to link "Tuck and Roll" with "All Tuckered Out" can result in a serious injury if peeling off at the crux. But when lead from behind the anchors of "All Tuckered Out," the bolts are perfectly placed. Belay for the route is very comfortable behind the anchors for "All Tuckered Out." View of climber finishing "Tuck and Roll" along the edge of the fin from the belayer's position is phenomenal.
Protection includes five or six draws. Keep the bolts at your center or to the left. Rappel down from the bomber Metolius anchors with a 60m rope, nearly all the way to the base of "All Tuckered Out" or rappel off the anchors of "Nutra Sweet" to the base of that climb with a 50m rope and do fiftth class down-climbing. Top-rope is doable.
ProtectionRoute has 5 or 6 bolts. Belay from behind 'All Tuckered Out' anchors. Do NOT link 'All Tuckered Out' and 'Tuck and Roll' together; rope stretch makes a leader fall dangerous. 60m rope required for rappel down to base of ATO (almost, but safe,nonetheless). Otherwise, rappel off of NutraSweet anchors to base of that climb and down-climb the gully or rappel in two pitches, using ATO anchors for second rappel.
