This route starts with a 5.7, which ends right below the roof. Then finishes with three permanent quick draws, under the roof, another right above the roof, and third about 3 feet above the roof. Finishing with super easy to reach anchors. I'm 5'1" and didn't have any problems reaching the holds. Clipping the crux was easy (2nd fixed clip), it's the heel hook, into a hand foot match that got me over the top of the roof that took a bit to figure out. I would rate this a 5.10C at most.

[Hide Comment] As of Oct, 2012, three steel Perma Draws provide protection for this extension. Excellent candidate for those wishing to tick their 1st .11a in the Gorge.
Good movement but too short to earn more than 2 stars, IMO. Oct 21, 2012
