Description

Start off with a fairly sequential (seems like everyone does it different) bouldery-style section that gets you to the roof, then pull up and get holds above, then pull like hell. Once you get established above the roof, the climbing eases.

Location

Just right of the very popular Mickey Goes To Vegas is a good sized roof. This route goes right over this roof.

Protection

5 bolts to shuts.

Important note to potential climbers: it is easy and safe to reach out of the roof and clip bolt 4, which gives you the confidence to go big on the crux.

I agree that at 5'11" the left leg had to hang at the crux, until the hands were bumped up to the big pocket. My shorter friend, who couldn't get the right foot to stick, campused the crux and then got his left foot up. Sounds like there's various beta for the crux depending on body and style.

I LOVED this climb. Feb 26, 2017

Hilarious that there are two conflicting comments on this route being height-dependent. I saw a 6'4" climber do it, I did it as a 6'1" climber, and our friend did it at 5'-short? We all used completely different beta. It's not height-dependent, you just need to find your own beta. May 26, 2015

As a 6'0" climber I came away convinced that this route favors shorter, flexible climbers. My left leg dangled uselessly during the crux as I was unable to place it above the roof. I am relieved to have finally sent this mini-project. May 24, 2011

A decidedly crimpy and bouldery start leads to a cool sequence pulling a roof that seems to favor the taller climber (I've seen a 12+ climber who is short come up a bit stymied on this one).

For some reason, given the angle of the rope as I led it, my lead ups to the red-point on Take the Money involved a fair bit of coin purse slapping. Watch your junk! Apr 22, 2009
