Description

This route tackles the big roof. Scramble to the base, a short face leads to the roof. Pull the roof using the seam/crack. 5.9 territory the rest of the way. If you belay from the ground (recommended), a 60 metre rope barely gets you down!

Protection

10 bolts? 1/2" x 6" bolts, bomber home made hangers (you won't be able to tell), chain anchors.
Not to be confused with Rough Roof on Redgarden Wall. . . . May 5, 2002
What a varied route! Steep slab climbing, slopers, crimps and a strenuous roof - all in 90 feet!

The scramble to the first bolt is fourth class, but beware of loose rock - my rope dislodged a pretty hefty place from the junk. This route is well bolted, pumpy and interesting all the way to the chains. May 19, 2002

I'll actually give this one 5.12a as a flash grade. The crux is pretty hard and not obvious. I ended up doing some pretty funky moves to get through it, not to mention power and reach. Check out the photo of the crux set-up.

Fun route. If you avoid going way left up top, then the route is NOT over after the roof.

A 60M rope just gets you to the ground. Jun 14, 2006

Reachy?????? I'm 5'6" It can't be reachy! I tried to place the bolts so you would go right. If you can pull the ruff you don't want it to end there! Jun 18, 2009

Spoiler alert sort of-






Tape the second joint (DIP) of your right index finger and it'll be more fun. Jul 20, 2012

This route has not seen much action lately, as indicated by the cobwebs at the crux. This is too bad -- the route really stands out in the area! The roof moves are tough, especially on the first attempt. If you're in the area, give it a shot!

There were two new routes near this one -- one to the left, and one to the right. The left one followed another seam, but the right one seemed to pull the roof on a few slopers. These routes were not in the new guidebook. Anyone know what they are? They look tough! Jun 10, 2018
