DescriptionStrenuous, possibly painful hand jamming out the crack in the center of the big roof leads to easier crack climbing above. The roof, and the rest of the climb, protect well with hand-size cams. The crux is getting your feet up and around the lip of the roof.
LocationThis route follows the hand crack in the center of the huge, obvious roof on the right side of the main wall. Shown as route number 25 on the Overlook route topo photo.
Protection1 or 2 each #1 and #2 camalots, for the crux; and a #3 camalot.
Tape is recommended.
Most people will not need to place more than one piece of pro before the roof, and if you're ok with running it out on the 5.4 above the roof, you don't need any cams bigger than #3 camalot or any nuts or any small cams.
