Protection

Nuts, small to medium cams. Two bolt anchor at the top of the roof, just below the summit.

[Hide Comment] Great position, but the climbing is not that good IMO. Oct 19, 2010
[Hide Comment] Technical face moves around a crack. Thin moves, but reasonable protection throughout. Apr 9, 2012

[Hide Comment] This is an awesome sustained piece of climbing. Good gear, techy moves, and a combination of face/crack climbing make this a classic in my book. Sep 11, 2012
