DescriptionSuper Roof is the obvious roof crack 15' left of a prominent off-width roof crack (Comfortably Numb, 5.11). Scramble onto a ledge to begin, and climb the imposing roof which is easier than it looks. Take care not to get your rope stuck as it happens more often than you might think. Descend down easy ledges off to the climber's right.
Although short this climb is lots of fun, has great exposure and good rock. The approach is minimal too, but enough to keep the masses away. This is a nice spot to get away and do some quality lines.
LocationApproach Steve Canyon from either Hidden Valley Campground or the Quail Springs Road via climber's trail's leading to the mouth of the canyon.
Looking north into the back of Steve Canyon one will see a very prominent roof on the left near some pine trees - this is Super Roof. Continue up the canyon by means of a trail and scrambling to reach the base.
