DescriptionRoaring Silence is a fun route up the left side of New Wave Wall. It starts with the first few bolts of Weevil and breaks right up the steepest part of the wall. The first crux consists of weird moves through black rock. The second crux comes up high on the steep arete. Many skip the last bolt as the climbing is pretty intense at this point.
The cruxes on Roaring Silence are separated by a nice, hands-off rest, keeping the grade on the lower end of 5.13. There has been some debate as to the true letter grade, but then again, sport climbers have to talk about something.
