Description

Tuesday Afternoon (TA) pulls the roof just left of Melancholy Man (MM) and joins MM at the second bolt on the slab. Climb up to the roof, undercling, clip, and boulder over the roof. TA is a fun variant start to MM with slightly harder moves at the roof.

Location

Start 10 feet left of Melancholy Man and 15 feet right of Lovely To See You.

Protection

2 bolts for the TA start (approx 9 total when linked up with MM).

The roof continues to shed. There is another rattly block with an "X" drawn on it that is ready to be pried off, even though it is a useful foothold. May 23, 2016

Hmmm.... Sent this over the weekend on third blast. Don't know what the "flake" was like, but without it, I thought the roof move was maybe 11d with some worthy, mid-10 moves up top. (I certainly had to pull the roof in the opposite fashion from what's pictured here. Is THAT the flake in the photo?) Jul 18, 2011

The flake at the roof appears to be gone now. I'm not sure how hard the crux is now (I'm not good at roof climbs), but it seems hard for 11. Dec 1, 2009

Hmmm. Choss evolves over time. Perhaps this one should have been better cleaned from the get-go, given the venue and nature of the climb. Jul 6, 2009

I climbed this today - coming out of the roof gave me the most trouble - I think I cracked off the very last of what was the infamous "flake." And now, without it, I'd feel very confident rating this section 5.12a and the remainder 5.11b/c (keeping the upper slab crux in mind). Jul 5, 2009
While climbing on this last week, we had an unfortunate occurrence on this rock. After my first send, I wanted to go a second time and clean the roof for a friend, and the sketchy flake on the roof, that was always suspect, finally broke. My feet were on it and I was reaching for the sidepull when all of a sudden CRACK,two pieces of rock flew out, nearly killing my innocent belayer.

Needless to say, its a bit harder start now, probably in the 12a/b range, so while aI agree with the previous grade of 11a as a whole, that bouldery start has some more burl in it.

Anyone try it since then? Nov 3, 2008

We climbed this on Thursday - thanks for knocking the big stuff off. There's a lot of sand on it, and a fair bit of loose rock still. I'd give the boulder-ey section a 5.11c/d for one move and the remainder roughly a 5.10... so maybe 5.11 as an average.

But it's a pretty tricky boulder move off that left hand to the sidepull. Doesn't feel very secure. May 31, 2008

We cleaned up the mess left on the ground and built a nice little bench out of it. May 12, 2008

A good boulder problem to an OK climb, but not too clean. My partner pulled off a few chalked-up holds the size of footballs under the crux roof, then I pulled off the huge starting flake (150 lbs, estimated). The climb is probably safer now, and more solid.... Fun moves, less interesting up top than below. May 1, 2008
