This is perhaps the best route at the cliff, and may be the best hard crack climb in White Rock. Climb some thin face and crack moves for 20 feet to a 10 foot roof split by a hand/finger crack. Powerful moves lead out of the lip, then it eases up to the top.


This route is about 20 feet to the right of True Grit.


No Bolts, anchor with gear.


I cleaned and TR'd this line, but never led it. I think Josh Smith was the first to do the lead.

I still have a pile of info on most of this stuff sitting around somewhere, maybe at some point I'll dig it out and upload it. Jan 1, 2009

This climb has a 2-bolt anchor with quicklinks. The anchor might benefit from these being replaced with chains.

This roof is amazing and way bigger than Lens Roof at the Overlook- wish I could climb it. Getting to the lip is powerful and hard already, and the next 2 moves are still not clear to me.

Peter Gram wrote me about this area. Paraphrased, Mike Schillaci, Cam Burns, and Peter, as well as several others, climbed at this cliff a couple of times ca. 1990. They thought they were the first to find it and there was no evidence of climbing there, but you just never know! It's not really in an out of the way location. They did the really obvious climbs: a central section of the longest face ("A Picnic with the Piranhas" 5.11-ish), and a thin roof crack, which he thought was probably the line subsequently rediscovered as Ring of Fire, and if so, is likely the true FA. Someone ought to drag Peter back down there to make sure its the same line, though. Mar 16, 2009
