California > Sierra Eastside > Bishop Area > Buttermilk Country > Buttermilks Main > Iron Man Area > Hero Roof Boulder

Description

One of the best warm-ups in the 'Milks. A couple laps on this will get the blood flowing on those crisp mornings.

Sit-start low on big patina edges on the right side of the overhanging face, then work your way up and left along the lip of the roof on good jugs. Pull over to a jug on the top.

Location

On the Hero Roof Boulder, just downhill and west of the Iron Man Boulder. The roof/overhang faces north.
