Description

Approach: Hobbit Roof is on the west face (backside) of the aptly-named Blob formation. Look for the obvious roof 20' off the deck.

This is a short route, but really fun! I'd give it 3 stars if it were longer. Thin and crimpy face climbing past one bolt (10d crux) lead up to the intimidating roof. The 10b roof protects very nicely with a #.75 Camalot. Get a good jam, take a deep breath, and fire it! Smooth sailing from here up the beautiful hand crack (#2 Camalot). Belay in crack.

Descent: scramble off climber's left.

Protection

1 bolt (3/8"), #.75,1,2 Camalots (1 ea.) Extra #1-#3 for anchor.
