Description

A burly roof move near the top makes for some tense moments even for seasoned 5.9 leaders.

Start at a long right-facing corner and follow a hand crack to a sizeable flat roof. Pull the roof and move up over easier ground past more roofs to the top.

Location

Starts a short distance past Prerequisite for Excellence, 10' right of Sunday Gardening.

Protection

Small to medium gear; sling it well to avoid rope drag. Bolted anchors.

I think this route is super classic. Good chill crack to start, great gear, one of the most exciting roof moves I've ever done and it's all there! You just need to nut up. Super fun climb! Jan 20, 2015

Wild climb!!! One of my favorites! roof moves are memorable Apr 9, 2018
Holy sandbag, that roof move is hard. Nothing a little triedhard can't accomplish. Pro is prefect and the fall is clean. Nov 23, 2018
