Description

This large roof is body height at the lip and recedes to about 3 feet high at the back with a right facing corner. Follow the line of sidepull jugs out the roof to the lip. Control the swing into a pinch and fire over the lip. A sweet problem.

Protection

A pad and spotter can be nice.

Super fun line. The variation staying off the right wall only adds a grade at most. Definitely height-dependent (I'm 5'4") and found a scrunchy left hand-foot match to hit the pinch on the lip. I think it'd be harder for a bigger frame. However, I don't think sticking the pinch on the lip is the crux, so whether or not you use the right wall doesn't affect the grade much. No way V8 though.

Without using the right wall, the line supposedly goes at V8. Some fancy footwork and a few situps go a long way. Mar 10, 2009
The right one, staying off the right wall (a little contrived)? May 8, 2004
Does anyone know what the variation is rated on Flake? May 8, 2004
Although this route is a little soft for V5, if is still great, and one of my favorite problems at carter. May 8, 2003
