DescriptionThis is a classic tough roof crack on the back side of Bath Rock. Many try this route, but but few succeed. It is probably a little bit of a sandbag.
Start below the obvious roof crack. You can clip a bolt on Gemini 5.12a near the beginning. Work up under the roof and fire in some thin hand gear. If you are tall, you can get a no hands sit down rest below the roof.
Jam the thin hand crack through the roof. (tape!!) Face holds can be found on the left and right. Picking the right moves and getting your feet in the crack, will gain a rest above the roof. An easier hand crack leads to the bolt anchor on the sport climb to the left.
I heard a rumor that Donini came back and solo'ed this thing in his 60's.
