Follow existing trails and climb using removable protection or in climbing areas with existing approved fixed anchors or bolts. Development of any new rock climbing, bouldering or rappelling areas and development of any climbing routes involving the permanent installation of new fixed anchors or new trail construction requires prior Forest Service authorization.
Don't be overly intimidated by this route. Oh, it's everything it appears from the ground, but the roof is actually pretty casual.
The initial dihedral is classic hands and/or layback. The upper part is much wider, but there are lots of big face holds after the offwidth section.
If you have a big-bro, the place for it is out at the lip of the roof. Try to avoid putting a cam in the crack in the roof, as the rope has a tendency to pull into the crack and wreak havoc with any camming device by either slipping behind it or driving it deeper into the crack. It's almost better to run it out than to place a big cam there.
This is a great route for the grade, it will make you work for it and will leave you with a climbing experience that you won't forget.
There are bolt anchors.
