Description

This is a superb big roof crack, with wide hand jamming at the crux, a great climb. Start up a less than vertical crack and climb up to the roof. You can use the wall for a while as you climb under the roof, but then you need to cut loose and do some upside down jamming until the angle eases to vertical. It's difficult to let go and place protection on the crux, but there is nothing but air to hit if you fall. This climb gets morning sun.

Protection

standard rack, with doubles in the hand to fist sizes

Has anyone else been deterred by the amount of bat urine streaking out of the crack at the beginning? Was I right to give preference to responsible wound care in skipping this one or did I miss something wonderful? Dec 21, 2012
