Description

Slab climbing over two short roofs with very thin gear.

Slab your way up to the lower roof placing all the gear you can. (I placed a grey alien about halfway up to the roof and a small nut slotted behind a odd flake under the roof.) Pull the roof using a some rounded edges. After pulling up, there is a slot for another small nut. Continue up to a good ledge with bomber gear. Work up and slightly right past a rail then more good gear. Thin moves but solid moves lead towards the second roof. Once at the roof, another gear placement can be found. Pull the roof and make a quick dash to the anchors.

This route can easily be TR'ed after leading W.R., but it's also a very sastifying lead.

Location

To the right of Winters Respite. You will be climbing the arete edge and face to the right of W.R. climbing past two roofs/overlaps. Starts about 15 feet to the right.

Protection

Black - Red Alien, small nuts, 1.5 Friend. This route shares rap rings with Winters Respite.

Really enjoyable slab climbing. If you make it out to Winter's Respite, this is not to be missed. Nov 12, 2017
