This route pulls three roofs; the second roof is the crux.


This is right of Par Six.


7+? draws.


After the rockfall, this route has become more difficult. Some more holds broke after that even, so now it is not quite as good. Apr 17, 2009

I believe the original name of this climb is Gopher Hole. This is referenced from my Durango Sandstone guide book copyrighted 1994. Aug 26, 2009

Someone has graciously updated the chains on this route - they are large, rust-free, and painted brown. Nice work! The only catch is that the bolts they are hung from are also in need of an upgrade. I'm willing to do the replacement at some point in the near future. While I doubt anyone will have a problem with a bolt-for-bolt replacement, I would also like to move the crux bolt (5th) about 4 feet to the left, making it directly in line with the way the route climbs. Yes, it would eliminate the 2 extra moves to clip it or the mandatory climb past and clip at your knee beta, but I think it would improve the overall quality of the route. Does anyone really have a problem with the bolt getting moved to the left? Aug 21, 2011

Chris, rebolting this route would be great. Someone is going to get hurt with the current equipment. I have seen one or two people go right at the 4th bolt, but it certainly isn't the natural line of weakness. Thanks in advance!! Aug 24, 2011

I put in new stainless steel bolts and hangers for bolts 4 and 5 on Three Roofs yesterday. Both of these ended up being a few feet left of the old bolts due to available solid rock and the fact that I couldn't get either one of the old bolts out of the wall. The old ones are horrendous - very rusted, spinning, and shattering the rock around them. I will come back with a better wrench and a hack saw to make the old bolts disappear.

For now, the other five bolts on the route look decent - at least not the death traps that 4 and 5 were. Bolts 6 and 7 look great; 1-3 need to be replaced eventually, but those all should be put back in the same hole if possible. Nov 21, 2011
We were climbing this route today and noticed that the nut on the 3rd bolt had loosened almost all of the way off the bolt. We were able to hand tighten nut, but it would be good if someone were to tighten it with a wrench. Just wanted to give people the heads up. Jun 28, 2015
