Description [Suggest Change]
Great roof crack! Follow the thin crack which diagonals up and to the right towards the roof. Look out for face features on this section of the climb. Climb up to and through the perfect hands roof, and into the hand crack above. The crack then peters out before the next roof, forcing you to climb delicately. After pulling the final roof scramble up the last 15 feet and set an anchor.
Location [Suggest Change]
On the south face of Citadel Crag, look for the large fin/roof on the left end of the crag.
Protection [Suggest Change]
Small stoppers/RPs through #3 Camalot. Doubles in #0.5 to #2 Camalot could be helpful but not necessary. After the crack peters out above the first roof, small stoppers will give you some protection. There are several large blocks at the top which can be slung as a top anchor. Walk off to the East (climber's right).
