Description

Ramble up the face to difficult moves reaching the first flake in the roof. A long move to a sloper on the second rail is followed by several jugs heading left across the roof. Cruxy section comes at the third draw in the roof at some crimps and slopey pinches and sidepullish holds. Eventually reach the end of the roof and a couple of juggy pockets. Cryptic moves lead up the short grey face on slopey holds and sidepulls to the anchor, it is difficult to see your feet on this last section so plan ahead.

Location

The right most route on the high roof to the right of the Insect wall or left of House of Pain. Obvious line that climbs a face to a left trending rail out the roof with fixed chain draws.

Protection

6 bolts with fixed chain quickdraws and a chain anchor.

Fourth bolt on this guy is looking pretty rough. Really rusty bolt that's spread onto the hanger. I'm not a local and only swung by once while I was in the area, so I'm not super familiar with the corrosion of bolts here or how long these things last, but it definitely looked suspect to me. That being said it still held my whips ha! Cool route, couldn't finish it, but it was reminiscent of some roofs in the NRG. Reimers was a cool spot to check out. Nov 30, 2016

Thanks! Sep 4, 2011
Chains on all bolts have been replaced. Now hanging are steel quicklinks, new chains, and steel keylock carabiners with a pin to keep them from flipping. Old chains were really rusty and the old carabiners were exteremly grooved/notched.

Enjoy! Jul 30, 2011
