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
