Description

Located a short distance to the left of the waterfall where the main trail meets the cliff at the right end of a large cave/alcove. Climb up junky rock and up the right side of a large block. Continue up the blocky face and roof system to a final roof below a big, left-facing corner (this corner is a good way to identify the route -- it begins about 50' off the deck). The crux is pulling this roof up and into the corner. Follow the corner and face left of the corner up to bolted anchors out right below the high roof.

Standard rack.

Look for a large hueco at ground level to start the route. Anchors are hidden.

.10a at Red Rocks, maybe, but 5.9 seems to be the consensus around here.

This is a good one! Dec 15, 2006

Great route with a super cool rest before the crux...you can practically squeeze both legs in for a no hands rest...check out the river behind you...say hi to your belayer...then fire it! Mar 20, 2007

Super fun jug haulin'. Improbably easy given the angle. Stays dry in a decent rain. Feb 9, 2009

Way more rests than it would appear from the ground and the gear is great. Dec 7, 2012

Absolutely amazing - your sport-climbing buddies will love you for putting this one up! If you're a 5.9 leader at T-Wall, don't be intimidated by the guidebook rating - you can do it! Watch the rope-drag and milk the rests. Mar 12, 2014
