Description

Start on good holds and grab a jug beneath the roof, then head over the nose toward a small incut. After the incut, jugs abound, but the topout is blessed with a miserable rocky landing.

Location

The tall prow with roof to the left of the Mattson Problem, the very steep cave boulder near the right end.

Protection

Pads (more than one if possible) and a spotter who is paying attention.

Block Roof is right of the the arete with the thigh high block in the crash zone. The arete is one of the best problems at Buffalo Park, but not sure if it has a name to mention(Block Arete?). There are two more problems/variations left of the arete. Mar 26, 2011

The problem around the corner (sidepull features, high crux and bad landing) is V5-ish and might be the one listed as Block Roof in Toula's guide, I really don't know. There are definitely many variations and eliminates on this boulder. Jun 24, 2010

If this is block roof, what is the problem on the other side of this boulder? Jun 21, 2010
