Description

Down and right from Grit Roof, the obvious roof crack visible from the parking area, is this short fun face.

Climb steep, featured rock to a high first bolt and then move right and up the steep, frictiony face past two more bolts [hangers replaced 2/16/01 - ed.] to an anchor atop a sloping ramp. Rap or downclimb the ramp (to the climber's left) back to the base.

A quick hit if in the area and a good warm-up route to do in between some of the nearby classics. One star out of five.

Protection

3 bolts, bolted anchor (all 3/8").

a #1 or .75 protects the bit before the first bolt if you feel so inclined. pretty straight forward either way. Jan 4, 2017

This was definitely a little harder than 5.8. I guess that's why it's listed as an 8+. I say 5.9. Anyhow, I remember making the first clip being scary with a fall down the chimney below possible if you slip. Feb 6, 2005

One move between the 1st and 2nd bolt is quite strenuous and requires forethought for those of us who are unburly. Jan 24, 2005
My friend and I did a first ascent near this route. It is a more direct finish to the previous route and has four bolts, it's a great climb. Jan 6, 2003
This is a good route, a bit stiff for the grade but overall a lot of fun. Sep 26, 2002
