Another Todd Graham classic. Tackle the left side of the roof. Shares first several bolts with Gravitron. Pulling the roof direct and heading immediately right is the preferred line that checks in at .12a.

Pussing out by heading left to the arête to cop a no-hands rest is considered .11d and off route by gorge locals.

The route is now mostly equipped with chains thanks to Matt C.


The obvious roof.


8 bolts.

[Hide Comment] Hadn't heard the "preferred local beta" when I did this thing, and to me the natural path led to the no hands rest. To intentionally skip it seems pretty contrived. Just sayin'. 3 days ago
