Description

Somewhat of an awkward start. The places you would like to have a hold for your feet are not there. Start on the far left of the wall on large blocks. Climb the corner (pretty easy) up to the overhang. Go right around the overhang to access a crack. The crack is the crux. Follow the crack to the large ledge above and viola, you're done.

It's a really short amount of climbing turns out. The cruxy part is a bit exciting for the grade but the whole thing is over so soon... Oct 1, 2010

Meh...worth doing once. FYI, you can down climb off this to the climbers left at the large ledge. Oct 1, 2010

If Roger's Roof deserves 3 stars, this route should do the same or even more. Just like the Roger's Roof, here the protection is sketchy below the crux, but good right on it (a #4 Camalot will do). Then the hand jam over and the layback above the crux are just fun. May 24, 2009
