Description

Climb the crack/corner right of the start of "Over Easy" to the roof, then join that route.

This is a much better start to "Over Easy".

Protection

Cams, slings for knobs.

Use small cams for the thin lieback. a .3 camalot and a .5 for the roof crack works fine. Jun 30, 2010

This was a very cool route, easily the best 5.9 and under offering I tried on this spire. The starting finger crack leads to an easy roof, leads to the classic knob hiking shared with Over Easy. Dec 10, 2011

The section under the roof is the most fun. Did this yesterday and there was already a .3 stuck under the roof so my lead just clipped it. If you're on the short side like me (5'2") just get a good heel hook on the roof and push up rather than look for something to pull cuz there aren't good knobs. I felt like it's more of a juggy mantle. Jul 10, 2017
