DescriptionThis climb was originally done as a traditional route and, as of 1998 there were still no bolts on this climb, but one might be considered to protect the roof-traverse crux in the upper dihedral.
This route gradually trends westward as you climb to finally ride some eight feet away from Fern Gully. Paso goes up its own secondary crack and dihedrals for about 30 feet to a prominent, triangular roof at the same level as the first overhanging jam crack on Fern Gully.
Climb directly up under the roof by stemming its dihedral or climbing the smooth face on the left, but there may still be some loose rock on this smooth face! It is possible to turn this roof on its eastern side and continue up the dihedral (5.8?) to the top.
On the first ascent, however, the leader moved west directly below the roof and climbed its overhang (5.9+). Handholds on the roof face are frequent, but many are thin blades and slabs that might break under heavy-use or hefty climbers. The handholds improve in strength and stability towards the left (east) side of the roof. No bolt has been place here as of 1998, but this might be a good place to drive one home, a foot below the roof on the smooth lefthand face?
