Description

Start as low as you can on the main rock, pretty close to where the path forks and goes out of the park, or around the rock. Go uphill, into the pit, and exit to the left of the roof problem.

There are several cruxes, and probably about 1,000 different variations to this route. The toughest section is probably bridging the gap near the cave, and the next 2 or 3 moves.

Height is misleading on this route: Yes, you're only 5 feet off the ground, but the route itself is some 75 or so feet long! Go and go and go. Topping out in the end should neither be scary nor require a crashpad. If you've survived the rest of this route, you should be able to climb the final top out with one hand. Breaks are plentiful on this traverse, there a definitely a few sections where you wish there were a few more.

You can also reverse this route (starting at the bottom of the roof problem, instead of the top) and working downhill. This way's a little tougher, and goes at about V7.

Protection

None, you never get more than about 4 feet off the ground, except at the finish, and that part's easy.

A local classic. Go back and forth for full value, due to all of the rests its hard to see this as being any harder than V5 even with the reverse traverse. This is my spring training route, I come back every year and have to figure out that short crux section again. Enjoy! Jun 10, 2017
This thing is great way to get a pump, don't stop moving. If you rest your going to ruin that lactic acid. But I really don't know how you can put a grade on it. You can climb low or high to really avoid all the hard moves. I guess it's just one giant eliminate, make every move as hard as possible and maybe it's v5-v6 May 28, 2010
