Description

In The Rough is a nice crack that passes through a small roof at the top. The climb is mediocre until you get on the face under the roof..interesting moves, but not difficult.
Variation - Climbing the small corner to the left is 5.9.

Location

On the right side of Jewels and Gems. Just look for the roof.

Protection

The gear is good. I do remember a small run-out in the middle because the crack was wide and flaring..nothing serious. I think I used a BD#4 in the bottom of that section. The crux is protected.

We used a medium sized tree behind the rap station as the primary anchor and set a couple directionals for a good TR setup. Fun climb, lots of variety. The roof move was awkward. IMO it was the least interesting section on the climb. Aug 19, 2013

The roof is mild by Gunks standards, but has so-so gear. OW is harder than it looks - don't they all? Aug 8, 2011
