Refer to the directions to Reggae
. This route is a significant variation of Reggae
, in that it has 40' of independent climbing, skips the crux of Reggae
, and gives one of a harder an much different nature.
After starting up Reggae
and going about 40 or so feet, Reggae
starts to get more vertical and difficult. In the attached picture, this is [almost] due right of the climber on Reggae
. At this point, move up and right to a right-leaning crack system. A little gear will be possible there, but not a lot, so protect well before you leave the initial dihedral. [The] moves are not difficult until you reach the roof. Move up and right in the crack to head for the apex of the obvious roof above. An eye-of the needle can be threaded by the leader, but this is not your destination.
Instead, get to the apex of the roof, just left of the left-facing dihedral at its side. Hand-jam out on strenous but solid moves though the roof and over the top of the blocks which form it.
Go down and right to belay before taking [the] scramble off as for Reggae
The protection is reasonable. If approaching from Calypso-to-Reggae, a set of stoppers and a set of cams should do. Crux pro for Rastaman Roof (in the roof) is 2-3" cams.
