DescriptionThis is the right edge of the roof behind the tree, 25 yards from the top. Bump out to the end the switch your feet and heel hook the prow.
Per Jed Smith: this is an awesome climb that starts under a large roof and climbs out and around the face of the overhang. Start in the crack immediately to the left of a large chockstone with an X on it (very, very loose). From the crack, make a large move to an excellent ledge on the right side of the roof. Then pull around the face onto another jug. The crux is getting your feet up and pulling to hard-to-see jugs and crimps. The climb tops out underneath the canopy of a ponderosa pine. Downclimb the tree or top out and walk around.
Eds. Two submissions were combined here to avoid duplication.
LocationPer Jed Smith: this is located under the first large overhang, approximately 40 yards down from the parking area. There is a large ponderosa pine tree directly west of the climb.
ProtectionTop rope or crash pad with a good spot.
Per Jed Smith: the landing is not very flat, and you can wind up horizontal if you use a very solid heel hook at the crux. Two pads should be enough with a spotter.
