DescriptionStart left of a large tree. Stiff, thin moves right from the start lead to a stance below a roof. Jam through the roof (crux) and head left into a wider crack. Fist jams in the wide section lead up and out.
While I'm told that many feel the roof is the crux, the starting moves cannot be ignored. This climb has something for all hand sizes and should not be missed.
The descent is the only negative about this route. Descend via the climber's left. Loosen your shoes for the jump, your toes will thank you!
